"It's really stunning, even today," said David Holmes, broker for the agency. "It's full of old, fine woods, with seven fireplaces, leaded glass windows and a third floor so big it has at times been used as a bowling alley and skating rink."
Deming, who moved to Oswego in 1887 to establish a mortgage company, used the home for years as a showplace where he and his family entertained friends and business associates nationwide and abroad.
The mansion, at 918 West 6th Street, Oswego, Kansas, will be sold at noon Saturday, Aug. 27. The contents will be sold over a two-day period Aug. 26 and 27, beginning at 9 a.m. each day. Individuals seeking additional information may visit www.davidholmesauctions.com or call 620-429-1330.
"The real estate will sell to the highest bidder at or above $150,000. Everything in the home will sell individually to the highest bidder – hundreds of pieces of fine furniture, lamps, artwork, mirrors, chandeliers and much more," said Holmes. The home will be open for showings from 1 to 4 p.m. Aug. 7 and Aug. 14.
