Road Trippin' Clinton's Curtis Mansion

CLINTON, IA ( CBS2/FOX28 )  At one point in history there were more millionaires per capita living in Clinton than anywhere else in the country. They were part of a late 1800s boom town explosion in the lumber business that made Clinton the milling capital of the nation. One of those lumber barons was George Curtis who played a huge role in the areas social circle.  The construction of his opulent mansion and the incredible parties held there when it was completed were the regular topic of articles in the society pages of Chicago newspapers.  Fortunately for all of us, that history that so often disappears, is preserved as though frozen in time.  The Curtis Mansion is open for tours, weddings and receptions and the city would love you to come and visit.  Get in the car and well drive as we take you on our latest  ROAD TRIPPIN adventure  to Clinton.
