One of the greatest examples of late 1800’s Victorian-style architecture, the Carson Mansion has been renovated back to it’s original character and is owned by the Ingomar Club. A gentlemen’s club of high local society. Another words-no woman allowed! Now I don’t pretend to know what goes on in a gentleman’s club, but I remember the scene from the “Titanic”, where the men got together for drinks and cigars, discussing how to take over the world. A lot of money has been spent to keep this glorious estate looking as fabulous as it is.
The Victorian era must have been an amazing time to be alive. Back then people thought they were at the pinnacle of invention. I once read that the government back then talked of closing the patent office, because everything that was ever to be invented had already been invented. Boy were they wrong!
