About a 15 years ago, Kelly Parks, M.S. purchased the Paris Gibson Mansion c.1890, which had been converted into a 9-plex and was in deplorable condition. After several years of extensive renovation, removal of additions and restoration, Parks turned the ugliest mansion on the block back into one of the most beautiful. As the founder of Great Falls, Paris Gibson was one of the first to construct a mansion in the budding city. Now visitors can enjoy the beauty of this classic historic East Lake Victorian again.
Kelly Parks waited 20 years to purchase and save the historic Jenks Mansion. 2016 her dream of owning the only Greek Revival Mansion in town came true.
