Rollins Mansion, Des Moines, Iowa
This magnificent home was built in Des Moines, Iowa in 1925 to 1927 by Ralph Rollins, owner of Rollins Hosiery Mills. It was designed by local architects Byron Boyd and Herbert Moore. Those architects also designed the Salisbury House located in Des Moines.
The Rollins family spared no expense when they designed the home, from the 16th century ship beams and ceiling beams from the inn where William Shakespeare performed to the stained glass designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
The current owners use the Rollins Mansion for wedding receptions, cocktail parties, dinners, intimate gatherings, banquets, luncheons and business meetings.
Taking photos of the Rollins Mansion has been an enjoyable work in progress. Interior photos have been taken. Photos were taken of various events to showcase the rooms, dining areas and banquet rooms. More photos will be taken through the next few months as the plants bloom.
