Louis Pappan is also the grandfather of Charles' Curtis, former vice president of the United States.

Some of the wallpaper has been worn away, however, we keep it to maintain the history and originality of the home.

We do realize last minute overnight guests may come for a variety of reasons. If this situation arises please contact me and amend your reservation for the correct number of people. This will protect both parties in regards to your insurance coverage etc.
