The Stonehaven Farm Mansion was located on a 2000-acre apple orchard in South Leavenworth county, and it was designed, with input from famed architect Daniel Burnham, and built in 1898 by Cora Wellhouse Bullard. The daughter of Judge and “Apple King of the World”, Fredrick Wellhouse, Bullard was one of the most significant and influential women in Kansas during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The house, known as the most beautiful country home in Kansas, served as a community and political rally gathering point for people in the region, and became a stop on the Union Pacific Railroad. Dr. Kent and Olga Porter acquired the house in 1985 and got to work immediately with the restoration and preservation of the house and grounds. The end result is a beautifully restored home that is a lasting tribute to Cora Wellhouse Bullard and all that she did for the state of Kansas.
