Venue Description

Seiberling Mansion
Construction on the Seiberling Mansion was completed in 1891.The architecture of the house is a Romanesque Revival style designed by Arthur LaBelle of Marion, Indiana. Built at the height of the gas boom in Indiana, the house was originally heated and illuminated by natural gas.The mansion includes eight rooms on the first floor, seven on the second, and a grand ballroom on the third floor with an entrance to the rotunda outside. The grand porch overlooks the grounds. Interior woodwork includes ornate design and parquetry of native walnut, oak, maple, cherry, mahogany, and butternut. The Victorian staircase is stunning. Moorish themes are featured in brass door knobs, plates, hinges, and sash lifts.Since 1972, the Seiberling Mansion, because of its historical and architectural significance, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The mansion is home to the Howard County Museum.
 
Elliott House
 
Elliott House was built at about the same time as the neighboring Seiberling Mansion, but was substantially modified by a later owner. Originally a classic Queen Anne, it was altered into a Tudor-style home. The house was restored in the mid-1990's and became the 1998 Designer Show Home. It is now available to rent as a venue for small events such as weddings, showers, anniversaries, receptions, and business meetings. Rental information is available at howardcountymuseum.org and by calling 765-452-4314.
