George and Sarah Joslyn constructed one of Nebraska’s greatest homes—a 35-room Scottish Baronial mansion atop a hill on Omaha’s outskirts – in 1903.The 19,360 square foot four-story house was completed at a cost of $250,000 in 11 months and features a rich use of carved wood, stained glass, chiseled stone, mosaic tiles, and wrought iron. The Castle and the carriage house were built of Kansas silverdale limestone. It includes a reception hall, music room, ballroom, a library and gold drawing room.
