This huge fourteen-thousand-foot Victorian mansion is converted into a museum and restored to the era of 1894. The mansion, which belonged to William Henry Stark and his wife, Miriam Stark, was built in the Queen Anne architectural style. Huge verandas, Jacobean chimneys, round towers and long sloping roofs are the identity of this house. Stark family was an avid collector of antique porcelains and silver. House exhibits those collections along with the original family furniture, carpets, woodwork, artwork and other artefacts. After the death of W.H. Stark and his wife in 1936, the house was vacant and locked until the 1970s. Then the restoration began and lasted for around ten years. Today, as the result of beautifully done refurbishment, the mansion gives us a glimpse into the interesting lifestyle of a wealthy family.

The W.h. Stark House Reviews & Ratings
This is not the Stark house from Iron Man. It was still a delightful place.
Wonderful tour of this house. Small groups and free. Tour guide was really knowledgeable.
Went as part of a Mother's Day special tour. Definitely will go back! Lovely historic home with original items used by the owners. Walking through, you can easily picture life as it was around the turn of the century. Beautiful and unique!
Beautiful place to visit
Very interesting late Victorian home in Queen Anne Style. Advanced construction methods have helped this 100 plus year old home survive numerous hurricanes. The home is intact with the family heirlooms, something unusual for a home of this time period. If you like touring old historic homes this is one to see.
