Gwinn as Seen from Lake Erie, 1955
Architect Charles Platt's design of Gwinn mansion was not typical for the time period. While most architects were building asymmetrical, intricate mansions at the turn of the twentieth century, Platt chose to embrace a much more Classical design. He is said to have been "rebelling" against the typical Victorian architecture of the time.
