ABOUT OUR BUILDING
Bull Mansion, built in 1862, is most famously known as the home of James Bull, co-owner of the Bush & Bull department store, and his family. Originally consisting of a simple stone building dating to the early 19th century, and later expanded into a tenement house, Bull bought the property in 1878 and vastly expanded the structure into a luxurious home by 1886. The exquisite interior details reflect James and his wife Mary's considerable wealth and taste for the arts. Lovers of Victorian architecture and design will notice many Eastlake, Queen Anne, and Aesthetic touches in the mansion, including graceful wooden arches, delicate stained glass windows, and ornate cast metal fixtures, all of which are original and in excellent condition. The Bush & Bull department store was a fixture in downtown Easton until the 1930s, and at its peak contained over 35 departments and employed up to 300 people. The mansion stayed in the Bull family until 1943, after which it passed through several phases before becoming the home of ThreeBirds Coffee House. We invite you to enjoy this unique and special building as much as generations of people have before.
