Sometime in the first year of our ownership of the mansion, Betty Stevens contacted us. Betty is one of the few remaining grandchildren of Albert and Mary Gufler currently living in Manhattan, Kansas. She provided us with a Gufler family group photo positioned on the front steps of the mansion shot sometime in the early 40"s . As we continue to live in and share the mansion with our community, the most common comments we receive are regarding the comfort people feel being inside this 100+ mansion. When we look at this family gathering on the front steps it is seems possible that so many wonderful memories were experienced through the years that the positive feelings in history linger on for those of us who have come much later. Below is the picture. (Betty is the cute blond girl on the front row)
