Ooh, I love this! I want to go visit this house. The dormers alone make it look like it has a lot of history.

Jen, this is the manor house at Quail Hollow State Park in Hartville, Ohio. The Stewart family lived here about 1914 to 1975. Several of the men were CEOs of the Akron, Canton, and Youngstown railroad, so they were quite wealthy. I can imagine each of these seven dormers being a room along a servants' wing perhaps -- for the butler, housekeeper, parlor maid, cook, chauffeur -- what other kinds of servants were there in this era?
