Property Details
The Wilhelm Mansion is an important Gothic Revival-style landmark residence in the Centre Park Historic District. Built in 1877, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it has a wealth of original architectural details. It has been operated as a B&B since 1989 and can continue in that capacity or serve as a substantial single-family residence. Inside, its rooms feature exquisite craftsmanship. Substantial oak doors open to a reception room with an ornate, molded-plaster ceiling. Stained glass and leaded glass are used in many windows and doors throughout. Outstanding interiors include an oak-paneled dining room with a barrel-vaulted ceiling; a room that originally served as a ballroom with doors opening to a side porch; a solarium and a 2nd-floor library with oak paneling and leaded-glass bookshelves. The house has 8 fireplaces. The property includes a spacious 1890 carriage house, built in the same style as the main residence, which has two, 2-bedroom/1-bath apartments over a 2-car garage
