This fully restored Queen Anne, Victorian mansion was built in 1892 by W.C. Ellis, owner of the Ellis & Son lumber mill. Ellis was also co-founder and president of the Kelly Canning Company, which was later named Iowa Canning Company, and at the time was considered the largest operation of its kind in the world. At the turn of the century, there were two banks in Vinton, Ellis was president of one bank and vice president of the other.
As you can imagine, this historic mansion has long been an important property in the community.
