Daily dose of history

We love Planet Sub.  A lot.  Around lunch time on most Saturdays and Sundays you could find us at one of two Planet Subs.  On the days we're feeling like a more scenic drive and want a really delicious sandwich (it's the old oven they use that gives it a distinct smoked flavor), we go down to the one by the Plaza.  Last Saturday we were making our trek to the Plaza location and saw that one of the old homes off of Ward Parkway was having an estate sale.  I can't guess how many times we've driven by this home and others like it and imagined how grand it was inside and how amazing it would be to live there.  So we had to check it out.  This house is on the list of historic places in Kansas City.  It was built during the Civil War.  I guess that's why it was pretty outdated on the inside.  There was 1800s charm mixed with some 1980s elements.  Really cool to see, but didn't make me feel like I was missing out on anything.  I like our house.
