Street Mansion is a three-story brownstone bed and breakfast located at the heart of Albany's historic Center Square district in New York State's capital city. Built in 1881 by successful wholesale grocer Albert Wing, Sr. as a gift to his new bride, the building was designed by Ogden and Wright and is Albany's earliest example the neoclassical style of architecture.
In 1896, Dr. Samual Ward purchased the mansion from Mr. Wing for his own wife and family. Along with other renovations, Dr. Ward contracted James McKinney and Sons Iron Works to install wrought-iron exterior-stair railings. The custom designed railings measure twelve and a half feet long and feature ribbon-like scrolls with twisted bars. Now over 100 years old, they remain a distinct and unique accent to the entry of the B&B.
During most of the 1900's, the building remained a private residence until it was purchased by the Albany Bible Institute for use as a seminary. Members of the Ladopoulos family purchased the building in late 1990 restoring aspects of the interior and creating what was then called the "State Street Mansion, A Private Guest House".
Soon after, the Mansion was registered as an historical landmark with the Historic Albany Foundation (HAF) and has since been periodically featured in the annual the HAF's House and Garden Tour.
Since 2007, Adam Ladopoulos has operated the Mansion as the State Street Mansion, New York's Capital Bed and Breakfast, featuring recently renovated guest, grand parlor, and dining/ conference rooms. These updates make the mansion perfect for all Social Occasions and a prime location for most Business Events.
The mansion is located in Just Steps Away from the New York State Capitol, Empire State Plaza, museums, libraries, parks and other public spaces. More, there is an abundance of shopping, night-life, and excellent dining on nearby Dove and Lark Streets and in the surrounding neighborhoods.
