ERIE, Pa. (WJW)– Standing on the shores of Presque Isle Bay, the majestic Watson-Curtze Mansion is the crown jewel for Erie’s Hagen History Center.
The 1891 mansion is more than 12,000 square feet with a beautiful sandstone texture.
“When the Erie County Historical Society took ownership of it, a lot of exhibits were put in there. So, it had more history rather than just being a mansion,” said Pam Parker, project manager.
The campus’s newest addition is the Exhibit Building, featuring Frank Lloyd Wright’s San Francisco field office. It’s not a replica.
“I think being here just gives you, sometimes it gives you the shivers where you think, you know, I’m in the presence of such greatness,” Parker said.
And best of all, it’s just a One Tank Trip.
