Babcock House

Babcock House

On October 8, 1871, the same day as the Great Chicago Fire and fires throughout the Midwest, more than half of the city of Manistee burned. Within a year, the wooden buildings that had been destroyed were replaced by brick structures, many of which were designed by famous architects of that period. Built in 1881, the Babcock House is an interesting example of eclecticism in late Victorian architecture. Opulent interior and working gas lighting, excellent example of the homes of wealthy Victorians. Open year round for tours by appointment only and a minimum of four people. Admission fee of $5 per person.
