William Kranz Mansion
A gem on Sharon's East State Street, the Kranz Mansion was built in the Colonial Revival style of architecture. The pastel color palette used is accurate to the time of construction. The Mansion was built by William G. Kranz who was the vice president of National Malleable Castings Co. in 1916. The residence, built in 1910-11, features a den and living room with quarter-sawn oak floors and mahogany trim on the first floor. Beautiful stained glass windows overlook the foyer from the grand staircase. On the second floor, a sewing and linen room was in the rear of the mansion and had quarter-sawn oak floors and trim. It was restored by the Nugent Group.
