  • As a writer I loved hearing about William Allen White and his life. The house is amazing and his study is even more amazing. Will definitely return for another trip.
  • This is a super cool historic place. Unfortunately it's not been open the last two times I've passed thru. William White is a remarkable historical figure and has an awesome biography.
