This particular mansion along historic Main Street was built in the late 1800s by Abraham
Mier, son of Solomon Mier who founded the Mier Carriage Company. Abraham and his wife
Evelyn raised two sons in the home; Everett, born in 1898 and Durbin, born in 1902.
Owner-operator Laura Scott is the proud mother of two sons just like Evelyn Mier was.
She purchased the home in 2001, and since that time, has been busy restoring the home
and customizing it to accomodate guests in comfort and privacy.
There are currently three private rooms available for guests. There is one suite with its
own private bathroom and the others share a quaint deluxe Victorian restroom, complete
with clawfoot tub as well as shower. There are also several spacious rooms with
comfortable period furnishings where guests can relax. Many of the rich architectural
details, such as the ceiling in the ladies' parlor were imported from various countries and
assembled on site.
On the exterior of the house, there was originally a turret above the ladies parlor with
curved front windows. However, Mrs. Mier did not like it and had it removed. There were
also rumors about a tunnel that ran beneath Main Street and connected the Rose House
and the Abe Mier house. However, there is no evidence to suggest such a tunnel today.
Your hostess is licensed to serve breakfast and catering is also available for other meals,
allowing guests to dine without additional travel. Please inquire in advance.
We hope you will enjoy your stay here and marvel in the rich history and legends that the
house has to offer. There are so many stories just waiting to be discovered.
