Gibson House

The East and West parlors now display two distinct time periods and styles, welcoming visitors into the world of the Gibson family, as it would have been during the 1880s. The dining room, the original 1850s farmhouse, shows what the Gibson family inhabited at the start of their pioneering journey.

The West Parlor highlights the heavily ornamented Renaissance and Rococo Revival furniture as well as Victorian women’s wear that would have been worn by Mrs. Gibson as she entertained her guests. The East Parlor now has furniture of the Eastlake furniture style and items representative of the start of Arts and Crafts movement in America.
