What's Happening at the Oglesby Mansion

Christmas at Oglesby Mansion

With help from our friends in the Garden Club of Decatur, the Gov. Oglesby Mansion is welcoming Christmas this year with lots of good cheer and Victorian splendor. And there will be many opportunities to see how beautifully the house is dressed for the holidays!

Heritage & Holly Tour

We will be participating in the Heritage and Holly Tour so the house will be open for visitors from 4:00 8:00 p.m. on Friday November 28 th and 12:00 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 29 th . Tickets may be purchased at Haines & Essick or at Kirlin's on North Water Street and are $15.00 in advance or $18.00 the day of the tour. All tours start at the First Presbyterian Church at the corner of Prairie and Church Streets.

Christmas Open House at the Mansion

The Mansion will also be showing off her Christmas beauty on Sunday, November 30 th from 2:00 4:00 p.m. for our regular last-Sunday-of-the-month open house.

Christmas Tea

And last, but certainly not least, join us for our annual Christmas Tea on Sunday, December 7 th from 2:00 4:00. Tea, punch, and lots of wonderful sweets will be served in the dining room and the house in all of its finery will be open for tours. Bring your children and grandchildren (or the neighborhood kids!) to see how the Oglesby children might have celebrated the season. There will also be an on-going Scavenger Hunt for any and all children who come to the house. They will have to check out the decorations and the collection very carefully to complete it and win a luscious Christmas Cookie from Mowery's Bakery. No reservations for either the open house or hunt are required.

 

We hope that the community will make us part of your holiday celebration and join us for one of these three events marking the start of the season. See you all then!
