This 19th Century Queen Anne Victorian home is an heirloom piece of Waupaca History. Originally the C.A. Spencer House, then the Mirror Lake Hospital from 1936-1955, holds historical significance in the heart of downtown at 301 E Lake Street, Waupaca. Present day, one will be pleased to find so much of the original detail and character of the home frozen in time.
When you enter this impressive home through the covered front porch and past the charming swing, the ornate stairway greets you in the foyer. The large footprint of the home spans over 2 floors of living space. Entering into the original parlor room, the distinctive coal fireplace is a beautiful decorative touch with ceramic gold tiles surrounding it. A spacious living room and dining room have amazing detail within the gorgeous hardwood floors. The updated Kitchen can be totally customizable with all moveable cabinet pieces.
