Inscription.

The Hulse-Daughters House (1892) at 617 Colorado is a rare example of a Shingle style home in Kansas. Architect H.H. Richardson, whose Richardson Romanesque architectural style can be seen in many of the major buildings on the KSU campus, was one of the leading designers working in the Shingle style.

The Hulse-Daughters house was designed by Cornell-trained architect H.M. Hadley, who was the first professionally-trained architect in Kansas.

Most Shingle style homes were built in the villages of coastal New England. Fewer than a dozen examples of Shingle style homes were ever built in Kansas.
