Construction of the mansion began in 1926. The property, located along the Sullivan Trail in Falls, was built and first owned by political leader and coal magnate, John Kehoe.
Kehoe held a number of positions throughout his political career, including that of Pittston postmaster, Pittston treasurer, Luzerne County Assessor and president of the Pittston City School Board. Prior to prohibition, he was even involved in liquor sales. Kehoe built the bulk of his wealth, however, through his coal company, Kehoe-Berge Coal Co., and various enterprises. He also put up the money to form The Sunday Dispatch, a newspaper which continues to serve the Greater Pittston Area today.
Kehoe and his estate were both well-known for hosting legendary clambakes during the summer. Governors, state officials, politicians, employees, and friends all attended Kehoe’s Old Timer’s Clambake. It was the largest clambake in NEPA. Kehoe lived on the property until 1961.
While this manor was built during the roaring 20s, it could just as easily fit in among the historic estates of Europe. When you approach the main residence, you will immediately greeted by the 3-story home’s magnificent brick front. Marble columns and a wide stone portico adorn the front entrance.
The home features walnut flooring throughout, as well as walnut, hand-carved double staircase to the bedrooms on the second floor. Marble arches, stained glass, and antique lighting features are just a few of the many charming elements included with this residence.
The mansion features a total of 24 rooms, including ten bedrooms, six total bathrooms, dining room, living room, a study/library with built-in bookcases, a semi-modern kitchen, and a breakfast room with beveled glass French doors.
Included with the main residence is an additional carriage house featuring a three-bedroom apartment and seven-stall garage. This apartment features hardwood flooring, natural woodwork, and a walk-up attic. The address for the carriage house in 2571 State Route 92, Falls, PA 18615.
Combined, both properties total approximately 16 acres. The lot is level and features both cleared and wooded land as well as an in-ground pool and tennis court.
