Atchison is home to a vast collection of stately, turn-of-the-century Victorian mansions, and the three-story brick Queen Anne on Fourth Street is one of the most impressive. Built in 1885 by lumber merchant George Howell, the 14-room beauty boasts a slate roof, eyebrow windows, and an inviting wraparound porch. For several years prior to construction, Mr. Howell carefully collected magnificent woods of oak, walnut, and mahogany to handcraft this masterpiece.
The house is now owned and maintained by The Muchnic Foundation, which has graciously made it available to the community. Since 1970 the house has been dedicated to exhibition space for the Atchison Art Association. Art classes, special events and rotating exhibits of some of our region's finest artists are featured throughout the year.
