You are invited to take a history tour of one of the “tassels of the neighborhood.” Lets introduce the mansion, and the guest house. This mansion is nestled into a large, (366×320) once immaculately groomed park like setting, and is accompanied by a charming guest house. There will be many Spring flowers to cut daily bouquets. Porches, sunrooms, large gathering spaces, and nostalgic walks are bonus with this property. Nelson Baker built the mansion for his family in 1889. He served as mayor of Kearney and vice President of the Midway Land Company. An electric trolley line ran behind what was described as one of the most elegant mansions in the area. The next resident of the mansion was John Bancroft. The Bancroft family made updates to the home and had the guest house built. The mansion boasts of 3 large bedrooms and an additional smaller room used as a bedroom. There is a large dressing room off one of the bedrooms. Notice the attention to detail in the closet. Very well thought out for the young ladies. 2 bathrooms on this level. The 3rd level appears to be a suite including bathroom, 2 bedrooms and a nice living space. The main space was ordained for family living and larger gatherings, with the home skirted with porches and gardens. So nostalgic and peaceful. The guest home has 3 bedrooms with adjoining sunrooms. Notice all the light fixtures. There are 2 fireplaces and a large attached plant room/green house, enclosed patio. Perfect available light. There was a new roof put on in 2016 and has a newer furnace and AC. The location of these homes afford easy access to all the amenities of Kearney, or the option of bypassing town all together.
