This mansion was built in the 1890's by the six daughters of Ezra Houck, a wealthy Frederick financier. The sisters lived in the 8,000 square-foot mansion for 30 years. In 1924 it became a professional building. Now it is the VOLT Restaurant, established by chef/owner Bryan Voltaggio, who left Frederick to pursue a career as a chef; and after success in New York and Washington, DC returned to establish VOLT. For more information see the VOLT website. Another VOLT window is posted on Lew's favorites.
