The McCandless Mansion, constructed in 1891 by architect E.N. Unrah, was the home of Reverend John Heber McCandless and Emma Marian Hamlin McCandless, daughter of wildly wealthy banker Henry H. Hamlin. Emma and John ?s marriage in 1885 was the union of two family fortunes. In 1891 the couple moved into their newly completed high Queen Anne mansion on West Main Street next door to Emma?s brother, Orlo and Mirabel Folger Hamlin's mansion. The spectacular Hyde-Murphy woodwork includes a golden oak quarter sawn dining room and front staircase and black Cherry Music Room and Front Parlor. Although the McCandless' had no children, their mansion also also home for their chef, butler, and maid.
