This house was built as a wedding present for the original owner and his bride by the groom's father, a lumber baron. The four reception rooms each display a different wood, carved and decorated in the famous Hyde-Murphy style. The reception hall is feudal oak, the living and dining rooms mirror each other in cherry, and the study/den is white oak. The three quarter paneling is exceptional! There have been two owners in 100 years and you could be the third! Perfect as a family home and ideal for a bed and breakfast. The Pennsylvania Wilds Program exists to bring more nature tourists to an area which abounds in wildlife, fishing, cross-country skiing, hunting and more, all in a county which is home to the original Pennsylvania State Game Lands and the Allegheny National Forest. You can see deer in your own backyard!
View the famous elk within a half hour's drive! There's something for everyone in Elk County. This house is in the east end of historic Ridgway, in a neighborhood famous for its stately homes. Be a part of the Ridgway Heritage movement and own this jewel of a home in the National Register district!
