Located at 762 Broadway in the heart of historic downtown Bedford, Ohio, this large, two and a half story Queen Anne style house was built in 1892-1893 for Holsey Gates, the grandson of Holsey Gates who founded Gates Mills.

About the Holsey Gates House

The house was gifted to Western Reserve Historical Society by the Gates-Handyside family and has been operated by the historical society since the death of Ambassador Holsey Gates Handyside, the last heir, in 2016.

The house is supported by two endowments established by the family at the Cleveland Foundation. The Holsey Gates House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).

Western Reserve Historical Society is the oldest cultural institution in Northeast Ohio, the region's largest American history research center, and one of the leading genealogical research centers in the nation.
