History

The Watson-Curtze Mansion is a majestic piece of Erie County history. Designed by Buffalo architectural firm Green & Wicks, it was constructed in 1892 from beautiful Medina sandstone in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Originally owned by Erie roofing paper magnate Harrison F. Watson, it was purchased by Frederic Felix Curtze in 1923. Curtze resided at the property until his death in 1941 and it was donated by his family to the Erie County Historical Society. Since the 1940s it has operated as a historic house museum and was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1983.
