About The Captain Vicary Mansion:

The Vicary Mansion was built overlooking the Ohio River in 1829 by Captain William Vicary, a retired Philadelphia merchant sea captain and land speculator. Over the years additional changes were made to the buildings and grounds; several unique adaptations allow visitors to observe early 19th century architecture in the house. It is now owned by Beaver County and is occupied by the Beaver County Historical Research and Landmarks Foundation. In addition to house tours, the Vicary Mansion is a very busy place offering many educational, informative, and entertaining programs.
