Built during the "Golden Years" of Senator Nelson W. Aldrich, Aldrich Mansion’s construction began in 1896 and was overseen by the New York firm of Carrere & Hastings. Nearly two hundred craftsmen, many of whom were dispatched from Europe, were commissioned to create this dynamic structure. Some sixteen years later, the seventy-room Mansion, once known as Indian Oaks, was completed.
