Outskirts of Nod's Limbs
The Tower Mansion was tall and had thirteen stories, including a humid basement, an even more humid sub-basement, an attic, and an attic-above-the-attic, which the twins used as their bedroom. The tower was so narrow that each floor had only two or three rooms, most of them were full of closets, couches, beds, curtains and pictures hung on every single wall. Among the many rooms are a kitchen, dinning room, game room, living room, a library with hundreds of books, a room that Ellen turned to an art study and an especially cavernous ball room which occupies all the ninth floor of the mansion.
The Tower Mansion was built over two hundred years ago by the town's founder and original mayor, Augustus Nod after he discovered the "Life Balm" and built the Tower Mansion above the spring and an underground laboratory to experiment with it and moved in with his daughter, Agatha. The family resided there until Agatha married Pierre Knightleigh and Nod disappeared. Thaddeus' wife ordered an extensive search, but when nothing was found, a Knightleigh decree gave Nod’s possessions, including the mansion, to Agatha.When Agatha died, the mansion and money was passed to Pierre, who sold the mansion to the then Ringmaster of the Heimertz Family Circus, Sigmund Heimertz. A Heimertz resided at the Tower Mansion ever after until two hundred years following Nod’s initial disappearance, the Heimertz in residence suddenly died. No next of kin could be found, so the current Mayor Knightleigh sold the property to the then soon-to-be parents of Edgar and Ellen. Ronan Heimertz arrived not long thereafter and volunteered his services as a groundskeeper. When the twins’ parents left seven years later for an unspecified absence, Heimertz stayed on in the shed, keeping an eye on the property.
Five years later, the Tower Mansion was demolished due to it's decrepit state and a parking lot for the Knightlorian Hotel was going to be built on it's place until Nod, along with the twins and Miles Knightleigh, was rescued by Heimertz from the cave Stephanie Knightleigh buried them in.
The destroyed Tower Mansion's grounds now serves as the twins' new Gadget Graveyard.
