COVID-19 Travel Information

Rockcliffe Mansion is a 13,500 SF grand residence listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built between 1898 and 1900 by lumber baron John J. Cruikshank, Jr., for his second wife, Anne Louise, and the four daughters they had together.  The family lived at Rockcliffe until Mr. Cruikshank's death in 1924.

In 1967, after being abandoned for 43 years, Rockcliffe came within days of demolition. With restoration continuing from then until the present day, it's 30 ornate rooms are now on display.

Decorated in the late Victorian and Art Nouveau styles, popular from 1890 to 1910, most of the original antique furnishings, fixtures, and personal items of the original family are preserved.  The mansion is filled with rich mahogany and oak appointments, magnificent Palladian windows, Tiffany stained glass, and fine interior decorations from America and Europe.  Numerous architectural features would be difficult, if not impossible, to duplicate today.

Guided Tours are given daily, March 15th thru November 15th, beginning at 10 a.m., running continuously all day, until the last tour of the day begins at 4 p.m.  Bring in this ad for $1 off the cost of admission.
