These old buildings are still standing today!
4) Chase-Lloyd House
This Georgian masterpiece dates from the late 1700s and has a storied past. Construction on the wonderful structure was begun by Samuel Chase, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Sold to Edward Lloyd IV, the house was finally completed under his ownership. In 1888 the house became a home for elderly women and, amazingly, remains so to this day.
5) Goodwood Plantation
This 1840s antebellum plantation house has had a lot of owners and quite a few renovations. But, despite the changes, the Tallahassee mansion still retains its period charm and serves guests today as museum and visitor center.
6) Whittier Mansion
Built in 1896 by William Frank Whittier in San Fransisco, CA, this massive home boasted some of the finest furnishings of the day and reportedly survived the 1906 earthquake so well due to its steel framing. The house was passed on to his son, Billy, who in turn sold it to the German Reich sometime before 1941 for use as a consulate building. When the U.S. entered into Word War II, the mansion was seized by the Alien Property Custodian. After a series of owners, the mansion was purchased by the California Historical Society in 1956. Today, this building is a private residence. And, there are some who say this mansion is haunted.
