Condition History

In 1958, the mansion was bought by Louise Scott. In 1982, the city of Newark acquired the building through foreclosure and by 1990 developed a plan to restore the building. However, by the late 1990's, the building closed due to lack of funding. The mansion remains vacant and on the list of most threatened historic buildings.
