The Camp­bell House Muse­um was built in 1851 and has been com­pletely restored to the high-Vic­to­ri­an opu­lence of the 1880s.

The Mag­ic Chef Man­sion was built in 1908 for Charles Stock­strom who was the founder of the Quick Meal and Mag­ic Chef Stove Com­pany. Designed by archi­tect Ernst Janssen, the 12,000 square foot home cost $49,600 and took only one year to build. This restored man­sion, today a pri­vate res­i­dence, sits on two acres and also fea­tures the orig­i­nal car­riage house.
