The Boorman House is a 1876 Victorian mansion built by Benjamin C. Boorman, a native of England. In 1864, he bought the Mauston dam, mills and water rights from the estate of M. M. Maughs. After a fire destroyed the mills, he rebuilt a mill on the northside of the Lemonweir River to produce flour and feed. Later he built a sawmill and a wool carding mill on the south side of the dam. The Boorman House features a grand staircase a drawing room and a widow's walk. 

The house is listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
