Experience the splendor of the late 19th century at the 1890 House Museum in downtown Cortland, New York. This grand limestone mansion, built by successful industrialist Chester F. Wickwire, is a symbol of the grandeur of the Victorian and Gilded ages. Designed by architect Samuel Burrage Reed in an eclectic Chateauesque style, the lavish interior of the thirty room mansion features parquet floors, jewel-like stained glass windows, oak and cherry woodwork, and ornate decorative stenciling.
Ongoing restoration projects have returned this architectural treasure to its Victorian and Gilded-Age splendor. The 1890 House Museum features restored period room settings, changing exhibitions, and special programs and events.
