Hercules Louis Dousman (1800 – 1868) acquired a large fortune through his various enterprises as a fur trader, lumberman, land speculator and frontier entrepreneur. In the mid-1840s the Dousman family began developing an estate on the banks of the Mississippi River at Prairie du Chien that would evolve into Villa Louis.


The estate's vibrant hues and rich textures reflected the family’s rise to wealth and leisure living. Throughout its evolution, the property was always considered an elegant and stylish Victorian country home, and much attention was paid to the grounds surrounding the mansion and outbuildings.


Color: Pewter


Text on front: Villa Louis: Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.


Quote on back:"Enter the World of Victorian America during the 19th century as your visit the estate of one of Wisconsin's most prosperous families. Built in 1871, the Villa Louis exemplifies elegant and gracious living alongside the Mississippi River in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin." - Thompson Ent.
