The historic Bedford C. S. Norton Mansion was built in 1897 by Mr. C. S. Norton using limestone from Blue Hold Quarry on Norton Lane. The three-story Queen Anne style home located in the heart of downtown Bedford is selling at auction on October 16.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, the mansion features 8,000 square feet of living space total with 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 11 foot ceilings, .51 acre lot and loads of charm and character. The cylindrical tower and conical roof, classic scrolling porch columns, intricately carved limestone fireplace, and massive staircase are just a few of the architectural wonders of the mansion.
