Froelich Mansion, O'Neill, NE
By Marita Placek
Drivers rubberneck as they drive down the street in O’Neill and slow for a good look at the large mansion that stands out among the many modest homes. The three story mansion built in 1930 is brick with tall chimneys and several large picture windows. A large ‘W’ is displayed high up on the wide chimney beside the front door. Large block fences block the view of the flower garden from the street. Driving around the block, a flagstone patio, above a green and white pattern and a path leading to the enclosed swimming pool and glass enclosed solarium beckons. Several large old cottonwood trees keep watch over this elegant mansion which retains many of its original historic details and also contains modern conveniences.
This house, long known as the Froelich (pronounced Fraylick) Mansion, has always been an important part of O’Neill’s history. Thanks to the young family who moved into the house in June, 2020, the house continues to play an important role in O’Neill’s civic affairs.
