About This Old House

Historic Gates-Myer mansion or Balloon Farm. In 1889, the property was purchased by Carl Edgar Myers (1842–1925), who established an aeronautical institution known as “Balloon Farm.” His wife Mary, known as “Carlotta, the Lady Aeronaut”, made many ascents in balloons in aid of his experiments.This amazing, 20+ room mansion is ready for restoration to its former glory. Gorgeous historical details throughout- custom woodwork and moldings, lighting, hardwoods, 7 foot doors & more. Many improvements already complete including newer furnace, hot water tank, vinyl siding, & more. Would make an outstanding Bed & Breakfast, apartment building, or an incredible private residence. Listed on the National Register.
