Seiberling Mansion was built in 1890 for
Monroe Seiberling, a well-known Kokomo
natural gas boom industrialist. His elaborate
Neo-Jacobean, Romanesque Revival mansion
took three years to build, costing $50,000.
George Kingston, inventor of the carburetor
used in Henry Ford's Model-T, lived in the
mansion from 1914 to 1946. Indiana University
at Kokomo used the mansion for classes from
1946 to 1965. The Howard County Historical
Society is responsible for the listing of the
Mansion on the National Register of Historic
Places on December 16, 1971. In 1972, after
a renovation, the mansion became the home
of the Howard County Historical Museum.
