A favorite subject of mine since childhood has been “haunted houses” in particular this old mansion built by Anton Sauer on the old Shawnee Rd overlooking the Kaw River. Several attempts had been made to contact the Owner in New York for permission to enter the property to paint, but no responses to date. A large chain link fence is between me and the building which I omitted for obvious reasons. A day did not go by without a neighbor stopping to tell of their experiences in this “haunted ruin”. I wish I could return there weekly to listen to some of the fantastic tales.
