I'm the GGGgranddaughter of the originally owners. Henry and Elenora Strong. Henry built the limestone home in 1867 from his nearby rock quarry at the foot of Bluemont Hill. The Strongs were early pioneers of Manhattan, Kansas locating there in 1858 from Bolton, CT. The Strongs had the largest apple orchard and dairy during that time. Elenora was the first school teacher in Manhattan along with Rev Blood's wife. Elenora taught in the loft of the Strong's barn. Henry was an abolitionist and walked to Missouri to fight the Civil War. Henry was on the good side of Government and was known to tend to sick livestock around the neighborhood. Henry supplied the limestone for Anderson Hall on Kansas State University Campus while Elenora sang at the laying of the cornerstone ceremony in a wagon. The Strong were very vital in the making of what Manhattan Kansas is today. Henry supplied stone to building on Poyntz, Sunset Cementary and the Strong School. Strong Ave. was also named after this family. The family was strong in their faith, trusting in GOD to guide them through hard times. The Strongs were no strangers to hard times as were most folks of that time. The lost several children, crops to natural disasters, livestock to disease, their orginal log cabin to fire and illness themselves.

Rachelle Routh purchased this house in 2006

This property is close and dear to those in Manhattan that love history. The location is in a nice established neighbor with nice trees and a large lot for privacy, grilling, volleyball and outdoor picnics. A great easy drive to the Bill Synder Stadium, Mercy Hospital, the Mall the Walmart.

WHAT A FIND

  • 5 out of 5
We were in Manhattan for a swim meet. We have 5 kids and obviously get very stir crazy in a hotel room. We were looking for a place close to campus so we could go back and forth during the long days. The Strong Inn was the only listing that popped up available when we were looking, but what a great find it was. Staying in a historic home was a real treat for the kids. They spent the first hour going room to room reading about the history of the house and the Strong Family. There was a welcome basket on the kitchen table that brought a smile to my wife's face. The back yard had plenty of room for the kids to play around in. I went for a ran each morning on the Linear Trail which is right across the street. The home is a great balance of Antiques and modern conveniences. The owner was very responsive to our requests and went above and beyond to make are stay comfortable and memorable. The kids said we have to stay there everytime we go to Manhattan, and we will.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY IN MANHATTAN

  • 5 out of 5
I meant to write this review immediately after our stay last Thanksgiving but later is better than never. This is a wonderful place, a historic farm house decorated to match its history.

We came in late at night and everything was ready and warm for us with a nice welcome basket to top it off. There was ample room for two couples and two children.

I can't say enough about how accommodating the owner was. When we come back to Manhattan we will definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great home away from home.

KANSAS GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed one night at the Strong Inn and really enjoyed my time there. The house is decorated so nice, it made for a very relaxing stay. Comfortable bed, nice hot shower and even a welcome gift bag awaited me, what more could you ask. If you get the chance they have a nice mall, and Cox BBQ is very good, as well as The Chef cafe. Nice quiet neighborhood, clean home and easy to locate. Go and enjoy your time there.

JACKSON-REDEMER

  • 5 out of 5
We all love this home! We had so much fun and great family times here. We have stayed here multiple times. It is very comfortable setting in a quiet neighborhood. A big yard for the grand children to play. It has all the convinces of home. Its location is perfect for commuting to and from other towns. When you awaken from a very restful nights sleep, grab a cup of coffee go outside, sit on the porch swing and watch the sun come up. Its is a peaceful and beautiful feeling. We will come back here again!

WOULD RECOMMED STRONG HOUSE FOR A RELAXING STAY

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Strong House when my husband was in town for business. The house was a wonderful alternative to a hotel. While the furnishings were antique and charming it still offered the electronic amenities we expect. Strong House is located near Kansas State university and would be great for families visiting their college students.
