The Historical Abdullah Efendi Mansion
The Abdullah Efendi Mansion’s story goes back a good 160 years. The very first owner of the mansion was the priest of the then Papazlık Church. The priest immigrated to Lesbos Island at a time between the end of WWI and the Turkish War of Independence. The priest exchanged his properties and goods with Abdullah Asaf Efendi a resident of Lesbos Island who was about to immigrate to Turkey around the same time. Thus the second owner of the mansion became Abdullah Efendi and the mansion was from then on regarded as Abdulah Efendi Mansion.
