The Reddick Mansion is listed on the National Registry within the Washington Square Historic District.  It was the only building of significance on the square at the time of the Lincoln-Douglas Debate on August 21, 1858.  William Reddick, the Mansion’s owner, was part of this historic event.  The interior has been restored to reflect the grandeur and charm of that time.

In keeping with Mr. Reddick’s desire to have his Mansion open to the community, the Reddick Mansion Association sponsors numerous events throughout the year. 

The Mansion has also been the scene of a variety of private events, including weddings, showers, celebrations, concerts, family reunions, seminars, meetings, birthday parties, retirement parties, Christmas parties, and picnics.

Rental space at the Mansion is available for such events with a variety of options.
