Hegeler Carus MansionThe stately Hegeler Carus Mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995, is now a National Historic Landark. Virtually unaltered since its completion more than a century ago, the Hegeler Carus faily home is an excellent example of artistic achievement in architecture and in interior design. It is also the site of historic accomplishments in industry (Mr. Hegeler founded the zinc industry in the area), philosophy, publishing, and religion. Visitors today experience the grandeur of a bygone era and the heritage of a fascinating family. Edward Hegeler saw to it that his daughter, Mary, was educated (first woman engineering graduate of The University of Michigan) and she later ran the zinc company - among many other accomplishments.
