Henry Blosser House and Barn

The Henry Blosser House and Barn near Malta Bend had been abandoned and neglected for years when new owners Dr. Art and Carolyn Elman stepped in to preserve these architectural treasures. The project, led by acclaimed interior designer Kelee Katillac, took years of painstaking effort by a team of preservation experts. The result is a masterpiece where conscientious conservation and spectacular design intersect.

Kelee was inspired but not confined by the design sensibilities of America’s founding fathers, and she allowed the owners’ personalities and modern style to shine through in every room. Now redubbed the Blosser-Elman Museum of Decorative Arts, the estate will be open for tours when COVID concerns subside.
