Allandale Mansion was the dream home of Ruth and Harvey Brooks. They built and furnished a distinctive home on grounds which were designed by the same man who served as the landscape architect for President Dwight Eisenhower.

Allandale Mansion and its grounds were left to the city by Harvey Brooks when he died in 1969. One of the conditions of his will was that Allandale "shall be open to the public and held for public use and benefit." In 1983, the city government supported a group of citizens in their efforts to renovate the facilities and develop the use of the facility. Since then, Allandale has made steady progress toward meeting the vision of Harvey and Ruth Brooks.
