Inscription.

In the early 1860's John Foster bought the farm land and house which is now Leavenworth's Museum. The farm was transferred to Lucien Scott a banker in 1882. Mr. Scott added the front part to the house and his architect George McKenna carved the beautiful interior woodwork.

Edward Carroll, later President of the Leavenworth National Bank, purchased the property in 1889. It was a center of gracious living until 1964 when his daughter Miss Ella Carroll gave the house to the Leavenworth Historical Society.
