Wilder Mansion News

You might notice we have recently redesigned our website. We're excited to introduce a new way of exploring and getting to know Wilder Mansion. While the website is new, the charm and historical ambiance of Wilder Mansion hasn't changed!

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the staff at Wilder Mansion wanted to team up with a photographer to tell the story of the Wilder Mansion. Staff teamed up with Glass & Grain Photography, owned by local residents Ian Healy and sister, Elise Healy Cellitti, to do a photo shoot in the hope that they could capture the very essence and charm of the mansion. And that they did.
