Overview

Victoria Mansion is open for the season May 1- October 31, closed on Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day. The holiday season runs from the day after Thanksgiving through the first Sunday in January, closed Christmas and New Year's Day. Victoria Mansion, also known as the Morse-Libby House, is the finest example of residential design from the pre-Civil War era in America. With superb architecture and well-preserved original interiors that were among the most lavish and sophisticated in their day, it is an unparalleled document of America’s highest aspirations in architecture, interior design, and the decorative arts. Our history, a quick tour, and our present-day efforts at restoring the Mansion convey an impression of the significance of this unique site, which is of national and even international importance.

We took the tour and were astonished to see the historical, architectural gem left in mint condition with original stained glass, furniture, wood work and art. If you have any interest in historical homes, architecture or 18th century furnishings; do not skip this amazing home,...More

Most homes built in 1860 don't have original furnishings - Victoria Mansion has been cared for and is still being maintained with the original pre-civil war contents. It is a wonderful example of a forward thinking builder with indoor plumbing, heat, and lighting. Worth time...More
