Probably the most magnificent remaining example of the craftsmanship which exemplified Millionaire’s Row, this 1888 home was designed by Eber Culver and built on land purchased by Peter Herdic. It is recognized as one of the most outstanding examples of Queen Anne architecture in the state and features extraordinary Tiffany quality stained glass windows which were featured in Victorian Homes Magazine.  The cherry and oak woodwork is in excellent condition, and the electric light fixtures are extremely rare.  On the second floor is a multimedia room formerly used as a chapel by the sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who taught at St. Joseph’s School across the street at Annunciation parish. It was opened to the public as a Victorian House Museum summer 2007.Decorated by florist Janet’s Floral Creations
