The Heck family had four children and lived lavishly in their home. They nicknamed the property Sylvanius after the Roman god of woods and fields. The grounds featured a tennis court and cement pond. The family-owned 50 acres of land around the home which were used as farmland and servant quarters. The Great Depression brought down the value of the family's oil supplies, and they were forced to sell their home to Frederick McIntosh in 1935. The home sold for $25,000.
Like Heck, McIntosh was a local businessman. The McIntosh family used the home's farmland to start a cattle business in the early 1940s, but the business was sold and the cattle dispersed upon McIntosh's death in 1953. After his death, McIntosh's family sold parts of the property that were farther from the home. The mansion is currently owned by Frederick McIntosh III and maintained as a private residence, though it sometimes hosts events.
The Albert S. Heck Mansion was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999 for its Neoclassical architectural style. The building is made of brick and features metal columns, applied balustrades, and brackets. Several details from the 1920s remain, such as a kitchen sink, panty, and broom closet. A metal storage building was added to the property in 1975 and an old servants quarters building was demolished in the 1980s after years of dilapidation.
