In this modern day and age, anything that is historically technologically advanced is notable. This is the very case of Kearney, Nebraska?s Frank House. Built by well known civil engineer and architect, George William Frank, Jr., the house is the very first electrically wired residence located west of the Missouri River. It was also a marvel for having indoor plumbing with hot and cold running water, steam heating, and a service call button that?s electric.
The architecture of the Frank House is notable as well. It was designed in Richardsonian Romanesque style, featuring a 3.5 ton tiled roof, 10 fireplaces, 20 closets, two full bathrooms, English oak paneling, and a marvelous Tiffany stained glass that is known to be the largest of its sort that is placed in a residential building.
