About
The Howard County Museum in Seiberling Mansion closes for annual cleaning and maintenance from January 1-31. The museum will reopen with regular hours beginning in February 2019. The Seiberling Mansion is an impressive Victorian home built during Indiana's gas boom by industrialist Monroe Seiberling. The mansion is now managed by the Howard County Historical Society and is home to the county museum. Multiple phases of renovation have returned it to it's Victorian splendor as an icon of the 1890's gas boom in Indiana.

Elegant estate worth touring
Feb 2020
The Seiberling Mansion is elegant, without being gaudy, and we were able to explore it on our own. One leaves with the sense of what life was like for a wealthy family in the early 1900's. We also learned about the contributions the Steiberlings made to industry and the Kokomo area. While we liked the whole estate, the ball room, with it's balcony, was a highlight.

This was an unexpected surprise and a good one. Our hosts were both very informative and helpful with ideas for other local historical spots. The mansion is a beautiful example of good taste and construction. Worth the stop.

Most beautiful at Christmas
Dec 2019
This is a lovely home, but it is most beautiful when decorated for Christmas. The dining room is my favorite with a gorgeous ceiling and a pretty stained glass window. Be sure to visit the third floor for the ballroom.

Lovely house
Dec 2018
The Seiberling is a beautiful home and worth a tour. It is a must see during the holidays and trying to guess how many trees are in the house at Christmas is a challenge. Our family rents the Elliot house every Christmas for an 18th century ball and it is the highlight of the season. The price for rental is fair and the house is perfect for any event.

Connecting Ohio to Indiana
Aug 2019
Loved the mansion and was very interested in the connection betweeen Munroe Seiberling, the builder of the house, and the Seiberling Farm and Family from Norton, OH. Have been to Stan Hywet and the Seiberling Farm in OH and this was a treat to learn more about that family and how they produced so many innovators, Inventors, visionaries, public servants and Philanthropists.

Thanks for sharing that insight! The Seiberling family isn't as well-known as some, but they had a significant and nationwide impact.

Nice Way to Spend Some Time
May 2019
This is a very interesting and well-maintained mansion with decades and decades of history inside. My daughter and I spent some time in the mansion and really enjoyed it. Park behind the mansion but enter through the front.

Wonderful!
Apr 2019 • Couples
We went to see the Seiberling Mansion and the tour guide was a wonderful, knowledgeable lady. She had actually gone to college there when IU owned the building. Her love for the house is obvious. The mansion is a wonderful display of artwork, craftsmanship, and history. A must-see if you go to Kokomo!
