Coming soon to the Seelye Mansion a tribute to holcomb and hoke. This is the company we have to thank for our bowling alley. The company was also known for its butter-kist popcorn machines as well as many other items. We recently learned that the company has closed their doors for good it seems, but the company legacy will be carried on through many years of playing our very rare bowling alley. We invite you to join us for a tour and a chance to share in the excitement this bowling alley brings.


On behalf of all of us at the Seelye Mansion, we would like to take time to thank each and every person that has taken time out of their busy life to join us for a tour of this historic home. We also appreciate all the support we get from everyone in general. Again THANK YOU and we look forward to seeing you on tour soon.

The home has a total of 11 bedrooms, A ball room, A bowling alley, Grand hall with a beautiful Tiffany fireplace, A music room with a beautiful Steinway Piano, A library, A sitting room, an office with all Dr. Seelyes last notes and records, A formal beautiful dining room, with two kitchens!
