The Gelpi Mansion (a.k.a Eleanor A. Gelpi House), located at 7125 Riverside Drive, is the site of the Dublin Arts Council. At the time of its construction in 1941, the property had a Worthington postal address. The building was originally home of Charles S. M. Krumm and his wife Sarah Krumm. Charles Krumm, a prominent attorney in central Ohio, purchased land along Riverside Drive in 1913. He commissioned architect Albert F. Tynan of Columbus, Ohio to design the home at 7125 Riverside Dr. for his family in 1940. Construction was completed by general contractor Edward W. Braun, in 1941. Mr. Krumm and his wife Sarah moved in to the house in 1941, to be joined later by their son Albert. Mr. Krumm lived at the home until his death on October 30, 1944. Sarah and Albert Krumm continued to reside there until the home was sold in 1947 to Andre and Eleanor A. Gelpi.

Andre Gelpi was a senior executive with F&R Lazarus and Company. Eleanor Gelpi was the founder of Swan Cleaners, and a philanthropist to the arts in Columbus, Ohio. Following the birth of their third child, Andre left Lazarus to take responsibility for operation of the rapidly growing Swan Cleaners business. Andre and Eleanor Gelpi lived in the home with their three sons until 1957 when the two filed for divorce. Eleanor continued to live at the home until her death in 1985.
