“a historical architectural landmark”
The mission of the Hegeler Carus Foundation is to encourage and support cultural activities by restoring and using the Hegeler Carus Mansion, an American center of philosophical, scientific, and religious dialogue. The Foundation was formed in 1995 to save and revitalize the Hegeler Carus Mansion.In December 2006 the Foundation purchased the Julius W. Hegeler I Home with a challenge grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust. This home is located directly across the street from the Mansion at 1306 Seventh Street.The Hegeler Carus Foundation is grateful to the Jeffris Heartland Fund for providing a matching grant to hire architect John Eifler. Eifler and Associates are preparing the Historic Structure Report for the Julius W. Hegeler I Home. This grant is administered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Great tour! Interesting family history and fantastic architecture!
Do it! The one hour tour is packed with information about the family and time period. The interior is full (and I mean full) of family owned items and most of the interior architecture and decoration is original. It's truly as if the family locked the door and walked away in the early 1900s. Completely worth your time to check this out.
