Hillforest Victorian House Museum

The charming Ohio River town of Aurora is home to Hillforest Victorian House Museum, a stately 1855 Italian Renaissance mansion just blocks from the river and downtown historic district. Home to industrialist and financier Thomas Gaff and his family between 1855 and 1891, the mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1992. It has been featured on cable television’s HGTV and is open for tours from April through December, with numerous special events taking place throughout the year.
