Family History

Harry C. and Paula Weible had this house built for their family in 1904 and loved here until their deaths, both in 1940. Harry made his fortune in oil and gas. The couple lived here with their young adult children, Fern and Muerl. In fact, Fern’s 1910 wedding was held in this house, which was “handsomely decorated”  throughout. Church and club events were often hosted by Paula in the home, too. In 1914, several Coffeyville residents were adding sleeping porches to their house. While the Weibles did not follow the fad, according to the Coffeyville Weekly Journal, they did make substantial improvements to the home that year.

Turn of the century home with all the character of yesteryear. Large front porch, 3 sunrooms, beveled and leaded glass windows in some areas, wood floors, pocket doors, open staircase and ornamental fireplace. Lot of space in this 2 story home with floored attic and partial basement. Main floors has small sunroom at foyer, living room dining room, family room 3/4 bath, kitchen and sunroom on back of house with knotty pine walls. This sun room downstairs can be used as a bedroom with no closet. 3/4 bath downstairs and full bath upstairs. Laundry is located on the main floor. Partial basement but mainly mechanical. 3 floor is floored attic. House has new pex plumbing. The east end of the house has had some peering done and has a guarantee. The electric box has square D breakers. Roof is newer as is guttering with leaf guards. Fireplace is ornamental at this time with a gas stove.



Nice backyard with plenty of space. To the south of the house is a large church parking lot. Love the front porch that expands across the front of the house. It’s not a perfect house but has the high money items already done. You can finish the inside touches. Dual purpose for several of the rooms so you can use as bedrooms or living space. We are calling it a 4 bedroom but you decide on how to use the rooms.
