On March 23, 1899, the headline read “Eldridge House Sold — Most Famous Hostelry in Kansas is Purchased by M. Conn” in the Lawrence World. Purchased for $35,000 from a Chicago owner, Conn had been with the hotel for several years as its operator and now was to be its owner. The World noted: “The news of the sale of the Eldridge will be good news for this city. It must be confessed that Lawrence had a black eye in that line for a long time.

The hotel ought to be valuable property.” — Courtesy Watkins Community Museum
