  7. The Sands Mansion
5th Street, Manistee, MI, United States


In 1881 lumber baron Louis Sands had constructed a large, three-story brick mansion on the corner of Fifth and Oak streets. Heralded as one of the most spacious homes in all of Manistee, his family continued to occupy the home until the late 1910s.

Due to the relocation of the family and because of the upkeep of the large mansion, the house was torn down in 1920. However, the brick was reused to construct four homes on the property; one on Oak Street and three on Fifth Street, all of which are still standing today.
