History: Established in 1926 Built in 1894 as the private mansion for riverboat captain, John Gilbert, today's "Mansion" remains the jewel of Golconda's historic "silk-stocking row." In the mid-1920's, the Mansion was converted to the local hotel it is today. Boasting some of the finest craftsmanship available a century ago, the Mansion's millwork still awes visitors today. The six fabulous fireplace mantels are centerpieces of an architectural excellence seen only in the palaces of Europe. An exotic gingerbread arch hangs overhead at the entrance which lore says was removed from Gilbert's riverboat. Come with an open mind and open heart and you will be sure to have a good time and leave as friends! See you soon.
