George M. Curtis was a Clinton industrialist in a community noted as a sawmill capital in the second half of the 19th century. The mansion is typical of the architectural style popular in the late Victorian period in America. The three story house is of brick veneer construction built in the Richardsonian Romanesque-style and has extensive terra cotta ornamentation. There are over forty stained glass windows and ten elaborate fireplaces in the house. The decorative interior millwork is exemplary of the Curtis Company products.
