A highlight of the Christmas season will include a Behind the Scenes Tour on December 8th, 10th, 15th and 17th 2021 at 1 pm. During the event, the Behind the Scenes Tour will delve into the history of the mansion alongside holiday traditions of the Victorian era.
New this year, the mansion has been decorated by local non-profit groups and volunteers. Each room takes a different theme, chosen by the groups. Everything from A Very Victorian Christmas to Christmas is for Cardinals is depicted in the rooms. Visitors won’t want to miss a working train set, which is assembled in the ballroom by the Hesston Steam Museum to the theme of All Aboard for the Holidays. The display features the smallest functional steam engine in Hesston’s collection.
The mansion’s Christmas schedule varies by week; visit www.barkermansion.com for a printable calendar or call (219) 873-1520 for details. Please note that the mansion is only open during advertised dates and times; the building will be closed on certain days for upkeep and City holidays.
