Tapton Hall’s distinguished history has seen it serve as a home to great names and a witness to great events. The story of Tapton Hall has been woven into the history of Sheffield since the eighteenth century and is a Grade II listed building situated on Shore Lane in the Crosspool area of Sheffield, England. Tapton House was the home of the Shore family, including Mary Shore, Grandmother of Florence Nightingale. In 1855 the Sheffield steel master Edward Vickers built Tapton Hall on the same site, and in 1867, it became the home of George Wilson of Wilson’s Snuff fame. By 1965 the Sheffield Masonic Hall Company had acquired the house, completely refurbished it, and in 1967 added the architect design extension. For three centuries, this house has been an integral part of the Sheffield landscape.
