Black Point Estate
Black Point Estate is a historic mansion situated on the south shore of Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. Built in 1888 by Chicago beer magnate Conrad Seipp, this Queen Anne style house is now a museum and offers one of the best and most complete collections of Victorian furnishings in the country. Restorations were completed in 2007 and the mansion opened to the public that same year. The state of Wisconsin owns the property and it is managed by a non-profit organization called the Black Point Historic Preserve. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
