Little mansion on the prairie

Ellwood Mansion

Isaac Ellwood was one of the first men to successfully mass produce and market barbed wire back in the 1800s. He made a fortune from his home base in Dekalb, Illinois. Today, his home is a museum that pays homage to his twisted passions.

Ha! "Twisted". Nice.

Interesting colors. Very Tim Burton-esque.

Though there are some obvious differences, this reminds me of Stephen King's house here in Bangor, Maine.
