Judge Wall House
622 N. St. Francis

Attorney Thomas B. Wall was appointed District Court Judge in 1885 at the age of 28, who at the time, was the youngest district court judge in Kansas. In 1887, he built this Victorian style home that he occupied until his death in 1906.

The house has a long wrap around veranda, second story speaker's balcony and Queen Anne style windows. The home is unusual for its design for that period.

It has horizontal lines, light color and large rooms as opposed to the usual dark wood, high ceilings, vertical lines and many small rooms. The home also boasts extensive interior fretwork in the entry way. Noted for his aid to aspiring young lawyers and his incorruptible support of the judicial system, Wall was also active in Republican national politics.
