Armstrong House

931 Laramie | Manhattan, Kansas


Completed in 1910, the Armstrong House is named for the first occupants of 931 Laramie Street, Carrie Isabel Armstrong and her two daughters, Fae and Mada. The three moved in following the demise of Mr. Armstrong, a well-known contractor in town, who fell to his death only the year before while building another Manhattan home. Mrs. Armstrong frequently hosted family and entertained visitors, and threw newsworthy dinners for her boarders, including one for Valentine’s Day in which “the dining room was appropriately decorated with hearts and red carnations and red and white were the colors carried out in the dinner menu.”

Fully restored in 2017, the Armstrong House stands today as a shining example of the architectural grandeur that was emerging in turn-of-the-century Manhattan. Offering three independent living units, the home features rare nine-foot ceilings in its basement level, original hardwood floors throughout, and elaborate exterior details that give the home such striking presence on its corner location.

In 2019, the Armstrong House was awarded the Commercial Maintenance & Preservation Award by the Manhattan/Riley County Preservation Alliance.
