G.W. Frank House – Kearney, Nebraska

Nebraska Tourism

The Frank House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1889 as George Washington Frank's third mansion. Designed by his son George Frank, Jr., it is made of Colorado red sandstone based on the H.H. Richardsonian Romanesque shingle style. Its focal point is an authentic five by nine-foot stained glass window by Tiffany. The mansion was wired for electricity during construction and included three bathrooms, steam heat, servants' quarters and ten fireplaces. Seven fireplaces remain. Restoration of the house has been an on-going project since it was deeded to the University of Nebraska in 1972. The mansion is open to the public as a historic house museum and its rooms are used for exhibits, receptions and meetings.
