A Rich History
Ceylon Court, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Excerpt from artfulliving.com
Eventually acquired by the Maytag family of the washing machine fortune, Ceylon Court has one of the most storied pasts of all of the Lake Geneva estates. Originally constructed for the 1893 World’s Fair held in Chicago, the sprawling building is a reproduction of a temple found in ancient Sri Lanka (then Ceylon). It’s shaped like an octagon and composed of several native woods. As was often the case, Ceylon officials decided to sell the display after the event rather than spend the money to transport it across the world, and real-estate tycoon Frank R. Chandler became the lucky new owner.
Dismantled plank by plank and shipped to Lake Geneva on 26 boxcars, Ceylon Court became Chandler’s waterfront estate. He commissioned Henry Lord Gay to design an addition, still employing only native Ceylon materials. In 1901, he sold the home to John J. Mitchell, president of the Illinois Trust and Savings Bank, who opened up the property to the public. As long as visitors parked offsite, they were allowed to walk onto the grounds and enjoy the immaculate rose gardens.
The Maytag family took over ownership of Ceylon Court in 1928, and it became known as the Maytag Estate. The property was eventually subdivided, much of it becoming the Lake Geneva Youth Camp, a retreat center touting life-changing experiences in Christ.
