Description 

The Classic Revival house was the first of six mansions built in the elegant West Highland Boulevard neighborhood, and the only one to survive intact. The exclamation point on the yellow brick house, trimmed with limestone, is a portico supported by four fluted columns and a bay window with leaded glass lights, that overlooks the driveway. A slate roof, copper and wrought iron trim highlight the elegant structure. Today, it is an office building and it is not open to the public.

Frederick Pabst, Jr. was the son of Captain Frederick Pabst, and eventually made his mark in the brewing and real estate industries. According to Sports Illustrated, Pabst also made his mark in the recreation industry, building ski hills in New England and installing a ski lift on Rib Mountain in Wausau.
