History

history campbell houseWhile the story of the Camp­bell house and fam­ily is com­plex, it is also one of the rich­est and most fas­ci­nat­ing looks at the lives of any 19th Cen­tury Amer­i­can fam­ily. It’s a story that details an immigrant’s expe­ri­ence, entre­pre­neur­ial suc­cess, the cre­ation of a show­place res­i­dence and the growth of a fam­ily and city dur­ing one of America’s most dynamic peri­ods of history.

In 1885, an exhaus­tive series of pho­tographs was taken through­out the house, com­piled into an album, and then lost until the late 20th cen­tury when they were redis­cov­ered and used as the basis for our multi-million dol­lar restora­tion project.
