Crosby Mansion

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Crosby Mansion

Crosby Mansion was finished in 1888 and belonged to Albert Crosby, a “medicinal alcohol” mogul who had the 35-room mansion built to wrap around his childhood home.
The grand mansion was called Tawasentha and had 15 fireplaces and a parlor patterned after one at the Palace of Versailles. Some say it is haunted, as lights were seen inside when no electricity was hooked up and sometimes made faces in the windows. Unexplained blood marks also are reported to have appeared on the front step.

  1. We stopped by here to check the place out while we were on our Honeymoon in Cape Cod. The mansion was closed but we obtained permission to walk around and take pictures. Definitely think we caught something watching us from the inside. Zoom into the bottom window.
