Himmel House Bed and Breakfast has a long, rich history in the Pittsburg, Kansas community. We are proud to offer you a historical experience along with our premiere services. In efforts to continue a strong connection with the community, Himmel House partners with other local businesses and provides frequent opportunities to enjoy Pittsburg.
Arthur Lanyon lost a poker game to Frank Playter resulting in his purchase of the northwest corner lot of Euclid and Rose streets in Pittsburg, KS in approximately 1893. The house was built in 1905 of Pittsburg brick and nearby Carthage, MO limestone. An architect "from the east" designed the house in Greek Revival architectural style. The home was given to Lanyon's daughter Rosalie upon her marriage to John Blair in 1918. The home remained in the Blair family until Rosalie's death in 1954. It was purchased in 2002 by Jeff and Sherri Stephens with the intent to open and operate a Bed and Breakfast. Himmel House welcomed its first guests in December 2002 and has been welcoming guests since. We hope to welcome you sometime soon!
