The Fairlawn Mansion & Museum is located in Superior in Wisconsin’s Douglas County. This Queen Ann Victorian mansion was built in 1891 for the affluent lumber and mining baron, Martin Pattison and his family. It is four stories and forty-two rooms that looks over Superior Bay with lush and stunning flower gardens throughout the widespread lawns. The mansion has been restored and is furnished much like how it was when the Pattison’s lived there. The third floor is reminiscent of when the mansion served as a Children’s Home from 1920 to 1962.
Tours are conducted every hour year-round. A discounted museum pass is available which gets you in here and at the nearby S.S. Meteor. Various events are held throughout the year such as Superstition Tours, Easter activities, and a diverse range of lessons and informative events.
