The museum in Parkersburg is located in this Victorian home built in 1895. Visitors will enjoy the wide variety of woodwork in each room, as well as many artifacts of local history.

One of Parkersburg’s most beautiful links to the past is the C.C. Wolf Mansion, now called The Parkersburg Historical Home. The Queen Anne style mansion was built in 1895 as a wedding gift for Wolf and his bride Mary Wilson. Some of the outstanding features in the home are the leaded glass stained windows, and the imported hand-carved woodwork. A closed passageway underneath the front staircase brings many stories of the secret tunnel out to the stables!

The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Hours: Open Sunday afternoons from 1 P.M. to 4 P.M. from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and by appointment.

Phone: (319) 346-1461 for information.
