As founding citizens of Montours City, the Mayhew Manor House and Estate was home to the Mayhew family for generations. Originally built in 1846, the Manor house was reconstructed in 1921 with estate additions of the garages, boat house, and gardens. Upon her passing in 1983, Mrs. Imogene Mayhew bequeathed the estate to the town of Montours City. Her son, Henry, and his wife, Callie, oversaw the founding of the Mayhew Museum as part of the Montours City Historical Society.
The Mayhew Museum is now home to memorobilia pertaining to Montours City through the years.
The Manor House has recently been restored back to its original beauty and charm and is now open to the public.
