The Historic Hannah Mansion located in Indianapolis, Indiana and was built in 1858 by a middle aged bachelor by the name of Alexander Hannah.  Alexander was born in Wayne County, Indiana and at the time he was a trained harness maker but decided to go out to the California Gold Rush to make some money and business ventures.  Alexander made enough money to come back to Indiana, purchase over 300 acres of farm land off of his father Samuel Hannah, then built Hannah Mansion.   Alexander didn't get married until his early 50's and marrying a lady by the name of Elizabeth Jackson.  Alexander passed away in his early 80's inside the home in 1895, the house was taken care of by his foreman for 4 years then Hannah Mansion was purchased in 1899 by a German immigrant by the name of Roman Oehler and still to this day .... Hannah Mansion is still in the Oehler/Elder family.  Now ..... The mansion is still a huge part of Indiana history and we still love doing history tours, hosting weddings, birthday parties, holiday events and other events as well !!!! So make sure to always visit the website for all the updates here at The Historic Hannah Mansion !!!!
