Chew Mansion Home Tour

The Chew Mansion.
 Originally built in 1871 by Andrew Baughman,
 the house was either completely reconstructed
 or had two wings added by James A. Chew,
 president of the Chew Publishing Company,
 in 1936. The Chews moved into the house shortly
 before Christmas in 1936, 
and the house is commonly known 
as the “Chew Mansion,” 

 Visitors will  receive an opportunity 
to marvel at the home’s
pipe organ and elevator.

This is how the house originally looked

Some time around the 30's it was changed to this

The house is 5864 sq ft
2 stories
6 full baths
14 rooms

  1. The stone fireplace in the sitting room is gorgeous. The whole house is gorgeous though. It's so fun to see how other people decorate their houses so I love a good house tour.
