Watson-Curtze Mansion

Built in 1891, the Watson-Curtze Mansion stands as a symbol of the elegance and style of the Victorian era when Erie’s prosperous industrialists used their wealth to create exquisitely crafted homes for their families. No detail was too small for the architects and craftsman who built the Mansion. This attention to detail is seen in the building’s elaborate woodwork, marble fireplaces, friezes, mosaics, and stained glass windows.
