Listing No. 9604

1875 Italianate
Bentonville, AR





Peel Mansion and Heritage Gardens

In 1875, Colonel Samuel West Peel built a marvelous villa tower Italianate mansion on the outskirts of Bentonville, Arkansas. It was a working farmstead surrounded by 180 acres of apple trees. The Peel Mansion is an outdoor museum of heritage roses, perennials, and native plants. Various vignette gardens are interlaced among curvilinear walks and large shade trees creating a most appropriate setting for this northwest Arkansas landmark that is also on the Historical Register.

Also on the site is the pre-Civil War Andy Lynch log cabin which serves as a gatehouse and gift shop at the entrance to the grounds. The cabin was moved to the Peel Mansion property from Brightwater, Arkansas, east of Rogers.

Tours of the Peel Mansion are available March-December
