Holmes County, Ohio Full of Treasures


Many people who visit Holmes County, Ohio know about the World's Largest Amish Settlement, the cheese factories, flea market, etc., but there is so much more.  One place that few people visit is the Victorian House Museum in Millersburg, Ohio.  This home exhibits a Queen Anne style architecture and was featured on the Spring HGTV feature called, "Victorian America".  The home was built by L.H. Brightman, a rich, Cleveland area industrialist.  The home has 28 rooms and combines Victorian architecture with Holmes County Ohio History. The fireplaces are one of the most interesting features, according to Carol Steffey, owner of Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast.  An especially fun time to visit is from November 21 to December 31 when they observe Holidays at the Mansion.  The rooms are decorated for Christmas and it is just beautiful.  The owners of Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast will map out itineraries for their guests of interesting places to visit while staying in Holmes County, including the Victorian House Museum.
