Description

Charles M. Ball Home, National Register of Historic Places and Register of Historic Kansas Places, 702 Spruce Street, Coffeyville, KS 67337 Built in 1906, the Ball House at 702 Spruce Street in Coffeyville combines the irregular Queen Anne house form with Classic revival stylistic features and captures an important transitional period in architecture when the two styles were commonly blended. Its asymmetrical massing and variety of shapes and textures distinguish this three-story house. Charles Ball, who gained local notoriety for his banking, business, and real estate dealings during the early 20th century, owned the house until his death in 1922. In addition to his many professional and community-related endeavors, Ball is perhaps most well known for his involvement in the Dalton Gang’s hold-up of Condon Bank of October 5, 1892. As the gang entered the bank that morning, they encountered cashier Charles Ball, who concocted a story about the safe being on a time lock. Four of the five robbers were eventually fatally wounded by the ensuing gunfire outside the bank. The home listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Register of Historic Kansas Places is 5306 square feet on a 85 x 193 lot. The home has rental income options, a 3rd story apartment and a garage apartment. Both are over 500 square feet. The home is a bed and breakfast, affiliated with the Kansas Bed and Breakfast Association. A basement is accessible via the home’s interior or by an exterior steel door. The home has beveled and leaded glass windows; wood floors; 2 staircases; beautiful woodwork; two fireplaces; two porches; original light fixtures; tall ceilings; rown molding.

Kansas Historical Tax Credits of $14,000 are transferable to new owner.

Coffeyville is 60 miles north of Tulsa; 2 hours south of Kansas City.
