Standing in the doorway of the Oliver Mansion, guests are likely to be overwhelmed by the sheer immensity of the inside of the home.
A large sweeping mahogany staircase extends up three floors from the main hall adjacent to the doors. To the right, an immaculately decorated parlor provides a cozy sitting area where the mistress of the house spent her mornings. To the left, a living area lined with bookshelves, elegant curtains and a fireplace holds plenty of seating for entertaining guests or lounging around in the evening.
Despite having been owned by a museum for the past 35 years, after spending even a few minutes there, it is not hard for visitors to imagine a day in the life of the Oliver family, who called the mansion home.
