Kirby House Burned Down

I see the Abilene forum doesn't get much traffic. Too bad, as it has some interesting places to visit and to eat at. One of the restaurants was the Kirby House, and I just saw on the Kansas.com website (for the Wichita Eagle) that the Kirby house burned Wednesday night, and is considered a total loss. Such sad news.

We are Kansas natives, and we're planning to visit Kansas for a week this summer. Abilene is on our list to visit.

I live in Overland Park and we saw that in the news up here. I hated to hear about their loss. It was a great building and the food was awesome. Truly a loss for Abilene and for Kansas.
