“This is one of the most incredible house museums we have visited. It is so well preserved and well-appointed, decorated beautifully and accurately. The docents are so knowledgeable and excitedly promote the history of the house. We go back over and over again.”

Peak into the past inside the Victorian Era Belmont County Victorian Mansion Museum. Twenty-six rooms filled with period decorations await you inside our Romanesque-style mansion, which was originally completed in the late 1800s.

History of the Museum

The Victorian Mansion Museum construction began in 1888 and was completed in 1893. It was designed in the Romanesque style. The house stayed in the possession of private families until the 1960s. The house had sat vacant for several years and plans were made to raize the structure to make way for a gas station. The house was purchased by John Bradfield and Everett Hanlon for $10,000 and was turned over to the Belmont County Historical Society.
