Welcome to the Camron-Stanford House! A few technical notes before we get started: Use your device to look up down and all around. Arrows are placed on the floor to help you move from room to room when you're inside. Keep a look out for information bubbles, just like the one you tapped on here. These will give you a close up look at some of our special collection items. Before you head inside, take a look around the outside space. It might seem familiar to you if you've visited recently. However, the scenery around the Camron-Stanford House would have looked quite a bit different in the 1800s. When the house was built in 1876, it was one of a handful of Victorian homes that lined the shores of Lake Merritt's new upscale community. Today, it is the only one that still stands. If you look closely off to the right, you'll notice the house's former carriage house, which burned down in the 1960s. Most homes in the lakefront community had carriage and/or boat houses on their properties. The photo above was taken in 1876, soon after the Alice Marsh and William Walker Camron moved into the home. When you've finished looking around outside, click on the front door to head inside.
