This is like a mill work museum, which was the business of the builder, stain glass and modern conveniences ahead of its time. Beautiful example of a mid-80's mansion lovingly preserved.

this is almost a showcase of Curtis' lumber products. Every room is in a different wood with ornate bannisters, staircases and woodwork. Beautiful windows and great furniture appointments highlight this delightful house.

The mansion was interesting and beautiful with all the wood. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the home and it's history. The only drawback is again it was only partially handicapped accessible, as you could not go upstairs if you were. Upstairs was warm...More
