Construction on the mansion began in 1911. The design was derived from modified plans of the home of infamous US naval officers, Commodores Oliver and Matthew Perry. The foundation is quartzite from the East Side Sioux Falls Quarries.
A vast green space surrounded by green hedges, The Courtyard includes a stone patio area. Look for the small fish pond, a lovely original feature.
Built a few years after the Mansion, the story goes that G. H. Perry had a friend with whom he enjoyed playing chess. To facilitate frequent matches, he built his friend's home just behind his. Mrs. Perry was not impressed.
The West Lawn provides a shared garden space for intimate gatherings. Easy access from both homes and a privacy fence make the lawn a special area.
Not part of the original build, the Coach House was added on as a storage space for both horse-drawn and motorized coaches.
