The Honeywell House, 720 N. Wabash St., Wabash, was purchased in 1960 by Mark and Eugenia Honeywell. The residence underwent a substantial renovation completed in 1964. In addition to being Mrs. Honeywell’s personal home, the House was used for frequent social gatherings until her death in 1974, according to a provided press release.
Mrs. Honeywell’s passion for arts and culture continues to be reflected in the elegant styling of the house, now operating as a cultural house museum. Tours, social gatherings, weddings, meetings, musical performances, and other special events take place regularly at the property, the release states.
