The Rahr West Art Museum

This structure was built for Joseph Vilas (a local politician) in the late 1800s. The 13-room house was designed by George Ferry and Alfred Clas and it costed $35,000 (they also designed the Pabst Mansion in Milwaukee). The widow of Reinhardt Rahr, who purchased the home in 1910, donated it to the city of Manitowoc in 1941 to use as an art museum.

Queen Anne Style Architecture

This style of architecture typically includes a sweep of steps leading to a carved stone door-case; rows of painted sash windows in boxes set flush with the brickwork; stone quoins emphasizing corners; a central triangular pediment set against a hipped roof with dormers; typically box-like "double pile" plans, two rooms deep.
