Liz Leach is an historian who has done extensive research on this property and she, along with Architect and Historian Stan Hernly have been instrumental in applying for the recognition of the Newell-Johnson-Searle House. A short drive from Lawrence and other northeast Kansas communities, Oskaloosa is rich in tradition.
