Amazing Before & After Photos of Rockcliffe Mansion Restoration
Rockcliffe Mansion has been going through some restoration these last few years bringing the house to its glory. Take a sneak peek at the restores stained glass.
In a video posted back in April you can see the before and after photos of the restoration of the stained glass in the mansion. In the video you learn that John J Cruikshank, Jr, who was a Lumber Baron, wanted the very best of everything for the house. He hired the best of the best, wood carvers, construction builders, and even artist to help being his mansion to life. There is even a glass window designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, yes that Tiffany & Co.
The house was built in the late 1800's and was abandoned for over 40 years after the owner passed. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it's a site to see as the house has been brought back to life over the years.
The mansion does offer tours and has been converted into a bed & breakfast, which has been rated number one in bed & breakfast stays. This is something that has been on my bucket list to take a tour in Hannibal. You all know how I am obsessed with real estate, and to know that the house was built with the very best materials in the world, it’s a must see tour everyone should take at least one.
