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.

Walking up to the Mansion you might feel this might have been a mistake as it looks very plain and stark. Inside it is amazing with most furnishing original to the house and the walls ceiling and chandeliers beautiful.

It is so hard to believe that 90% of what is in the Mansion is the original. Just breathtaking. Picture taking without flash is ok

Visited this old mansion with friends. Excellent ongoing restoration work, but already looking as it did in the 19th century. We enjoyed it. Look for a Groupon admission deal.

This stately Victorian mansion is over 90% original and is carefully being restored. The tour is very informative and we were allowed to take his many photos as we wished. Had a great time.

The opportunity to watch the restoration in progress was very interesting. Our docent, Alicia, filled us in on the various bits of history, and we enjoyed her wry sense of humor.

Went with a group to tour this beautiful restored mansion. The staff were knowledgeable and although it is a mansion, it is a tad small and can get over crowded the way the rooms are sectioned off. There are some parts still being restored, but...More
