The Van Horn Mansion is located on Lockport-Olcott Road in Niagara County, New York and overlooks the east bank of Eighteen Mile Creek. The Mansion includes 16 rooms and five bathrooms.
The building acquired its name from the original family who built and shared the house for nearly a century. Many of the Van Horns contributed immensely to the growth of the area, and their names have been honored with use as streets, towns and more. To learn more about the Van Horn Family, please visit the society's history page.
It was the first brick building built in the area, and has seen continued upgrades and reconstruction throughout its nearly 200-year history. The Newfane Historical Society was gifted the building in 1987, and we began an extensive restoration project to restore the mansion to its former grandeur.
Now restored to its original splendor, the rooms in the Van Horn Mansion show life as it was in the early 1800s, complete with original and authentic clothing, furniture and toys.
The Mansion includes 16 rooms and five bathrooms. The society holds annual fundraisers to help maintain the large costs of maintenance, upgrades and more. It is available for tours in the summer on Sundays, by appointment.
The mansion is also available for private events, for details please visit our rentals page.
