Monday, May 25th 2015 - All Day at Cramer-Kenyon Home
509 Pine Street

The Board of Directors of the Cramer-Kenyon Historic Home, located at 509 Pine Street in Yankton, is proud to announce that the 2015 touring season will officially open on Memorial Day Monday, May 25th. Built in the late 1870’s and first occupied in the 1880’s, this Eastlake Stick Style home occupies a place on the Historic Register and has been a source of inspiration for visitors since the mid-1970’s

The home is named in honor of Nelson J. and Alice Bullfinch Cramer who lived there from 1890 until their deaths in 1916 and 1929. The house then went to Mr. Cramer’s great-niece, Esther Kenyon who lived there with her husband, Herbert, and family until his death in 1972. Most of the furnishings in the home belonged to either the Cramer’s or the Kenyon’s and have been carefully safeguarded over the years so that they maintain their original magnificent Victorian elegance.

During the season, tours are given of the entire historic home including the basement with its winter fish pond, the attic which was the living quarters for the house help during the time the Cramer and Kenyon families lived there, and the two richly appointed levels which comprise the rooms which the family inhabited from 1890 forward. The carriage house is also on the tour list, as is the gazebo and, of course, the gardens which feature flowers and bushes reminiscent of the era in which the home was occupied by the Cramer and Kenyon families.

Some improvements to enhance the comfort of visitors have been added. The front steps have been rebuilt as has the entrance door leading into the east-facing family covered porch. There is, of course, a lift at the west side of the house for our visitors who have difficulty with steps. At your first visit you will meet our Tour Guide/Caretaker, Veronica, who will enthrall you with the family’s stories.

After opening weekend, regular tours are held Wednesday through Sunday until Labor Day from 1:00 until 4:00 PM; a small fee of $7 for adults and $2 for children 6-12 is asked, with children under 5 admitted free. For large group tours, please call the caretaker of the Home at (605) 665-7470. Arrangements can also be made for small receptions and parties by calling that number. Take a step back in time and enjoy the sweetness of the past with a visit to 509 Pine Street in Yankton – the historic Cramer-Kenyon Home.
