This home is the former residence of Charles Gates Dawes, a wealthy businessman who was Calvin Coolidge's vice president and winner of the 1925 Nobel Peace Prize. The first floor of the house is open to the public. The mansion has 25 rooms in all, including 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and 12 fireplaces (11 original). A coach house is next to the main house and includes servant's quarters and animal stalls. The setting for the home is picturesque with 2 acres situated on the lakeshore.
