The Garlinghouse family (Lucien B) started in Berryton with a farm and later moved into Topeka. They lived at 1516 SW Western, here is that house today. (It was not a Garlinghouse build or design) I am not entirely sure when they moved to this house, but I believe that it was near the turn of the century.
Garlinghouse died in 1907, so his widow was living there with her three
sons - George and Lewis were starting the real estate company, Elbannis
was another brother - a carpenter it looks like at this point.
