The Mansion
Please wait for image to load in window below
Constructed by Harman and Margaret Blennerhassett, exiled Irish aristocrats, the Blennerhassett Mansion soon became regarded as the American West's most beautiful home following its completion in 1800. Its elegantly furnished rooms were the scene of a glittering series of dinners, balls, and parties making Blennerhassett Island one of the Ohio Valley's leading social centers.

Due to their involvement in Aaron Burr's "conspiracy", the Blennerhassetts fled downriver. Their home was destroyed by an 1811 fire. In 1984-1991, the state of West Virginia rebuilt the mansion, which today receives nearly 50,000 visitors every year.
