The Mansion

THE HISTORIC LUCKNOW ESTATE

Start your journey to the historic Lucknow mansion as you travel via trolley on the same road that Thomas & Olive Plant traveled back in the early 1900s.

Upon arrival to the mansion, a guide will provide you with a 10-15 minute orientation. Learn about the rags to riches to rags story of Thomas Plant as well as the history of the Arts & Craft style building.

After the orientation visitors are welcome to tour the mansion at their leisure on a self-guided tour. Pick up a floor plan in the main hall, and learn more about important features such as central vacuuming systems and needle showers. Special activities are available to children as an educational and exciting way to explore the mansion. See everything vintage from the clothes in Olive Plant’s closets to the innovative electrical fixtures. Step out the back door to the lawn and stroll through the gardens.
