Lamb Manor Estate Opens to the Public

New Life Village

The owners of the Lamb Manor Estate- a national historic landmark, are opening the doors of the mansion to the public on Sunday. 

The Lamb Manor mansion was built in 1910. The current owners, George and Nancy Corbett restored the home and moved the 220-ton house up the bay. Some drivers on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge got to see it float in the bay when it was moved from Palmetto to Ruskin in 2006.

On Sunday, they're hosting a charity event whose proceeds will go to New Life Village- a multigenerational community for foster-care families and surrogate grandparents.

"They can expect to see an incredible house, every inch of it is remarkable," Paul Halpern, New Life Village director said. " It'll be just a lovely afternoon in an unforgettable property."  

There will be live entertainment and catered food, too.

Halpern said New Life Village was lucky.

"We're the only ones who have the opportunity to do that because the house is for sale, so the people who are coming will be the only ones that will have the opportunity to see it," he said.
