Gibson Mansion - Built in 1890. I purchased the mansion June 10, 2009 as a birthday present to myself. I was drawn to the mansion and I knew when I walked in the front door that I had to have it. It was a wreck when I bought it.

Gibson Mansion Spring 2011 - Tower was removed around 1910 and the house was stuccoed to make it less Victorian and more Georgian, as was the new style. It took 5 - 40yrd dumpsters to remove the stucco and reveal the original siding and Victorian detail. I had the front porch design re-created to match the original photos. There is lots more work to do.
Paris Gibson, son, grandson and granddaughter circa 1919. Paris died at age of 90 on 14th December, 1920.
