It’s officially wedding planning season and we have created a list of the best wedding venues across Kansas I-70. Our communities offer the bride and groom-to-be a wide variety of venues to choose from. From vineyards to modern buildings and Victorian homes to country style weddings we have something to offer everyone.

Goodland

The Mary Seaman Ennis House located at 202 West 13th in Goodland, Kansas, is an excellent example of a type of Victorian architecture usually called the Queen Anne style. Built during a time of early prosperity in 1907 by the widow of William Ennis, this two story house with covered porches has been an important part of Sherman County history for almost a century.

In the year 2000 the Sherman County Historical Society was offered the opportunity to purchase this property. Because of the support of the members and the general public, in March of 2001, the Historical Society purchased the house with plans to use it for living history displays for the purpose of preserving and telling the history of Sherman County.

This 1907 Victorian home has been entered on the Kansas Historical Register as the “Mary Seaman Ennis House” since May 8, 2004. This beautiful and historic property would be a wonderful venue for your special wedding day.
