205 Hanover St., Concord Michigan
In 1883 Daniel and Ellen Mann built this two-story house in the small picturesque farming community of Concord. The late-Victorian building features plaster ceilings, unusual catch-release doorknobs and a marbleized slate fireplace. Eight rooms of period furniture include pieces dating back to the 1840s, when the Daniel's and Ellen's parents were furnishing their first homes, and to 1873, the year they were married. Restored flower and herb gardens and a carriage house with carriages, sleighs and other exhibits help illustrate the way Michiganians worked and played in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1969 the Mann sisters, Jessie Ellen and Mary Ida Cady, bequeathed their home to the people of Michigan. Mann House opened to the public as a museum one year later.
