1835 - 1901

Fred Harvey, founder of the restaurant chain that bears his name, lived here from 1883 until his death. The family occupied the residence until 1943. It was transferred to the Leavenworth Board of Education in 1949.

Harvey pioneered well prepared meals served in spotless surroundings to railway travelers. They were such an improvement over the primitive unsanitary eating houses and hotels of the day that they became an immediate success. In 1967 the Fred Harvey System extended from the Great Lakes to the Pacific.
