The Woodland Inn is a beautiful example of Queen Anne style architecture, with its Doric columns, while Corbe House is a fine example of Italianate architecture. Both buildings were built by architects Bohlen & Son for the Sisters of Providence, and are now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Come enjoy the beautiful details of each property and hear a few stories that help bring each house alive.
