During the week of July 4th we also went to Fairlawn Mansion.
Fairlawn Mansion – Victorian House Museum
906 East 2nd Street, Superior, WI
Built as the family home for lumber and mining baron, Martin Pattison, his wife Grace and their six children, Fairlawn was completed in 1891 at the cost of $150,000; an equivalent of well over $3 million today. The mansion stands as an enduring testament to Pattison’s success and standing in the community. Later turned into a home for children from 1920 to 1962.
It was really a very nice tour, lots of good information and a lot to see. About an hour tour, then you can do the grounds if you like. Again – mostly photos follow, not much chat.
This is oldest daughter- she looks pretty good in that room.
A few photos from the music room.
Love the ceiling.
This is a chair that was embroidered by the lady of the house. She embroidered each chair herself, so each chair around the dining table is just a little different.
Grandson, Oldest Daughter and Son-in-Law…what are they looking at??
TA-DA…beautiful painted ceilings.
Some gorgeous stained glass windows in this house.
A nice tour. I recommend stopping at the Fairlawn Mansion if you are in Superior, Wisconsin at some point.
Hope everyone is having a great day!
