Kansas Brothel

Madam Steffleback's 1890s Brothel House

This house sits on historic Route 66 in Galena, Kansas. With the help of her sons, Ms. Steffleback was believed to have murdered up to 30 of her customers, mostly miners, and relieved them of their bags of gold. Her sons deposited the victms' bodies in nearby mine shafts. She ended up dying in prison in 1909, having never admitting to the murders or disclosing the location of the fortune she amassed. A few local residents plan to refurbish this house and open it as a bed and breakfast. Reference photo courtesy of Mike Callens in Tucumcari, New Mexico.
