      “We were very happy to see the community become more involved in Barker Mansion’s Christmas activities,” said Jessica Rosier. “It was wonderful to have the non-profit groups bring their ideas and creativity to the mansion, especially those groups that brought children to help decorate.”

     The 38-room mansion was built by freight car industrialist and philanthropist John H. Barker in 1905, after he expanded onto his father’s original 1857 home on the same site. Barker took advantage of the mansion’s location right next to the Haskell and Barker Car Company, bringing many of the factory’s advanced mechanical amenities to the home. The Mansion contains original furnishings, art objects, a ballroom and has and architectural style sunken garden.
