The Historic Preservation Partnership of Lyndon, Inc. (HPPL) was organized in early 1997 in response to the discovery of the Bailey House. After learning that the land on which the Bailey House originally set was being sold, HPPL contacted the owners, who generously agreed to donate the house—with the stipulation that it had to be moved offsite.
The Historic Preservation Partnership of Lyndon raised funds and accepted donations to have the house moved to the Lyndon City Park. The house was moved in October of 1997. HPPL members have performed extensive research on the Bailey House, worked to place the house on the Register of Historic Kansas Places, and been instrumental in working with preservation professionals in the restoration of the house.
Visit the Bailey House
The Lyndon City Park is open to the public from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm daily, and the outside of the Bailey House can be viewed during that time. However the interior of the Bailey House is open only on special occasions or by appointment.
The first story is made up of two larger rooms and the upper story contains four rooms opening off of the staircase. You may view interior photos on this site. Watch a short video briefly telling the story of the Bailey House.
