The Hamilton House is a beautiful historic Inn has been established in a Second Empire mansion prominently located on Main Street (Business US 12) in Whitewater Wisconsin. It is one of Wisconsin's best examples of this unique architecture style including a curved mansard roof. It is the style Napoleon III used in his reconstruction of Paris about the same time period. Also at this time, the French Impressionists had their first exhibition in Paris. This is the reason each of our eight elegant guest rooms is dedicated to one of the original eight French Impressionist artists. You are carried away to the charm of the mid-nineteenth century when you enter this unique Second Empire mansion built in 1861. Grand common areas provide enjoyment for your leisure while comfortable romantic rooms make your nights serene. Hamilton House is included in the National Registry of Historic Homes.
