|Facility:||Governor Ross Mansion & Plantation|
|Description:||Walk back into time when life was more gracious. Explore a complete Victorian Italianate mansion with slave quarters, barns, sheds and spacious grounds. Learn what life was like before the Civil War, why a popular Delaware governor was smuggled to England with a Federal warrant out for his arrest and how the "War of Northern Aggression" changed life forever.
The Seaford Historical Society has fully restored this rare brick home. The Italian-Villa style Victorian features a three-story tall entry, ornate plaster ceilings, Moroccan ventilation, beautiful furnishings and even a hidden safe. Once the home of Governor Ross, the mansion is a testament to Southern living.
