The Howard County Museum was founded by the Howard County Historical Society in 1923 to preserve the history of Howard County. It moved to the current site in Seiberling Mansion in Kokomo in 1972 and today contains many artefacts and displays of the past.
Seiberling Mansion is a listed building built between 1889 and 1891 for Monroe Seiberling of Akron. It is a grand Neo-Jacobean (Queen Anne) and Romanesque Revival style mansion designed by Arthur LaBelle of Marion, Indiana. Originally the house would have been heated and illuminated by natural gas.
The mansion forms a splendid backdrop for the museum, containing grand rooms and a stunning ballroom on the 3rd floor, and massive, Victorian Grand Staircase. The rooms are ornately decorated with native walnut, oak, maple, cherry, mahogany and butternut woods. The Victorian staircase is stunning. Moorish themes are featured in brass door knobs, plates, hinges, and sash lifts.
