The 35 room Schenck Mansion, a bed and breakfast in Vevey, Indiana, was built in 1874 by Benjamin Franklin Schenck, son of a wealthy "hay king" of the steamboat era. It was the marvel of its time with a four storied tower and five bathrooms. Each bathroom contains a walnut cased copper lined tub. Architecturally the house is of the second empire style. It has four porches, seven balconies, eight chimneys and numerous windows. The original slate roof is still intact. The exterior trim is all made of tin. The property now belongs to Jerry and Lisa Fisher of Patriot, who have restored the mansion to its original grandeur.
