The Pabst Mansion: Milwaukee, WI

I finally got the chance to tour the Pabst mansion. It was an amazing experience. I felt as if I was a Queen in this mansion. Everything was so beautiful. The plaster ornaments with gold ink and gold leaf caught my attention the most. There was just so many details in them that I couldn`t take me eyes off of them. The living room on the left when I first entered the Mansion was my favorite. I love the Baroque style decor it has and hoped that one day I can design my house just like that. While touring the place I thought of a part in Nato Thompsons writing about Experimental Geography, the idea of space as art. The whole mansion was a piece of art. There were also lots of artwork on the walls and also even had a huge handmade dollhouse in a room. Each room was designed differently and had unique designs and decor. It was like touring a house and an art museum at the same time.

History: In 1892, the Pabst Mansion, the finest Flemish Renaissance revival mansion in America, was constructed to be the lavish home of Captain Frederick Pabst. The Captain Frederick Pabst Mansion Inc continued the restoration of the mansion and the preservation of the Pabst Family legacy. This building was the only survivor of eighty homes that once lined Grand Avenue, it was designed by the noted Ferry & Class Architectural Firm in the Flemish Renaissance style. The exterior is dominated by two large stepped gables, a loggia, lions heads, and a serpent. The interiors showcase exquisite woodwork, stained glass, tile, fabrics, ironwork, and fine art.
