||Built in the Queen
Anne style with a wrap around veranda and porch gazebo in
1888, the Cubbon/Jacques house was originally located on north
Fairmount. In 1900, businessman and Wichita police chief
George T. Cubbon purchased the house and moved it to its
present location. The home was moved by mules and
probably took days or weeks to move the 2 1/2 miles.
Local history records suggest that it
was Cubbon who ordered the arrest of Carrie Nation on December
27, 1900, after learning that she was carrying out an
anti-liquor campaign in Wichita.
The home was the
residence of the clerk of the district court, A. E.
Jacques, from 1932-45. Beginning in 1994, the home
underwent extensive restoration to return it to its
original appearance with the removal of a third floor
tower and stucco siding.
