Built and completed in 1906.

This spectacular red stone mansion was the home of legendary circus showman AL. Ringling and his wife Lou, and later it became the home of Ida Ringling North, AL.’s only sister. AL. was the eldest of the five famous Ringling brothers. The Ringling Bros. Circus was at its peak when the mansion was built. Since 1976, the Mansion is listed on the national registry of historic places.
