Inscription. This residence, built for cattleman J.D. Shuford, was completed in 1913. Designed by the Kansas City architectural firm of Shepard, Farrar, and Wiser, the house reflects the Prairie School style with its hipped roof and wide eaves. Other prominent features include a porch with classical columns and balustrades. In 1927 the house was purchased by local physician and civic leader R.S. Killough. It remained in the Killough family until 1946.
