The Anderson House, which is perhaps better described as a castle, was built in 1902-1905, as the home of Larz Anderson and his wife. Upon Anderson's death, the house was given as a gift to the Society of the Cincinnati which was something of an American noble order dedicated to preserving the legacy of the American Revolution (and today largely devoted to education about the revolutionary period) founded in 1783 after the Revolutionary War. The house serves as the organizations headquarters, and houses a museum and library.
