         William Curtis, father and founder and builder of Eugene (North Topeka) ( First Ward of Topeka) was born on a farm in the state of New York in Dec. 1800.

          When he was 26 years old, he "emigrated" to Eugene (now Evertonville), Vermillion county, Indiana.  He met, courted and won the heart of Miss Permelia Hubbard, a Yankee girl, then 21 years old.  Who was born in Sheffield, Berkshire county, Massachusetts, May 14, 1807. They had a family of 14 children, seven sons and seven daughters.
          William Curtis became greatly interested in the Kansas territory as described by his sons Oren and Ira.  He sold his entire holding in Indiana, including his 600 acres of land and moved his entire family to Kansas. 
            The Curtis family arrived in 1860, William Curtis bought 200 hundred acres from Louis Pappan  (William Curtis was to Eugene (North Topeka, Kansas of that day, about what John D. Rockefeller and J. Pierpont Morgan were to the Wall Street) and his wife Julie Gonville Pappan, fronting the Kaw river in Eugene (North Topeka) and started the building of a large colonial house that stood on Curtis Avenue

    The house shown above was in Mount Florence (close to Meriden) Kansas.  This is where the Curtis family stayed when they first came to Kansas.  This house, located on private land, was destroyed during the 1970's.
"Old Curtis Home Is Survivor of Two Great Floods"
Topeka Capital-Journal  September 10, 1961
by Ruth E. Hunt

    "Still standing, but in a sad state of disrepair, the old Curtis home at 905 North Van Buren is the survivor of two great floods (1903, 1951).  It was one of the mansions of North Topeka, which the Curtis' had laid out in 1864. (The town was then known as Eugene.)  This remained the family home until after the flood of 1903, and its last mistress was Mrs. Permelia Hubbard (Grandma) Curtis who died that year at the age of 96.
    Mrs. Curtis was the mother of fourteen children and reared eight of her grandchildren.  The most illustrious of the grandchildren was, of course, Charles Curtis - successively representative (1893-1907), senator (1907-1913, 1915-1929), and Vice-President of the United States in the Hoover administration (1929-1933).
    The home on North Van Buren was a social center for years, the scene of countless parties and club meetings.  It was known also to the less elite of Topeka's citizenry; it is said that no one who asked 'Grandma' Curtis for food or shelter was ever turned away.
    Charles Curtis was always proud of his fine horses. His half-sister, the late Mrs. Permelia "Dolly" (Curtis) Gann, used to tell a story of the 1903 flood.  The family stayed in the home on North Van Buren as long as they dared, but when they realized that they must leave, they summoned the Negro stable man and told him to hitch up the horses.  "Lordie, I done got them away days ago", replied the old man.
    Shortly after that flood, the Charles Curtis family moved to the brick house at the southwest corner of Topeka Avenue and 11th Street.  It was their home until they moved to Washington D.C., when Charles Curtis became Vice-President."

    Unfortunately, the twelve room Victorian house on Van Buren, had a fire and the current owners were working to restore the house, BUT, the City of Topeka decided the house was an eyesore so it was soon destroyed.
