Marcia Young - Architectural Gems

The David Davis Mansion State Historic Site is a beautifully restored, Victorian home, built between 1870-1872 for Judge David Davis (1815-1886) and his wife Sarah (1814-1879). The site consists of the historic Victorian style mansion and grounds of Judge David Davis, a close friend and confidant of Abraham Lincoln. Marcia Young, the site manager for the mansion from 1990 to 2014, gives interviewer Pete Harbison a tour of the historic home and grounds.
