Brown Mansion

We had the honor to investigate the famous Brown Mansion in Coffeyville Kansas. Completed in 1904, the Brown Mansion is a three-story, 16-room mansion built at a wholesale cost of $125,000. The main floor includes a living room (called the hall), parlor, music room, library, conservatory, dining room, billiard room, entry, kitchen, and maids’ quarters. Five bedrooms and three full baths are located on the second floor. The entire third floor is a ballroom, which at times served as a schoolroom and gymnasium for Brown’s son. A full basement houses the butler’s quarters, laundry area, heating system, walk-in ice box, wine cellar and other storage rooms.
