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.

The Victoria Mansion was beautiful, inside and out. We did the self guided tour, but there were many volunteers that were able to answer any questions. The house was rich with history and very elegant. You cannot take photos inside and they do offer discounts...More

Call ahead to be sure that the house is open and get guided tour times. The home is elegant and the guided tour quite interesting. We just wish that our group had been smaller.

Tour shouldn't take more than an hour; you would have to check their website for their hours of operation.
