Barker Mansion


      Barker Mansion will bring another special event, Glowing Lights Night on Saturday December 17th. During this self-guided tour on Saturdays, December 21st,  and December 28th, 2019 at 4 pm, visitors are given glow stick necklaces and can wander the mansion at their leisure with the only illumination coming from the glowing Christmas tree lights. Standard admission charges apply for this event and reservations are not needed.
    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 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.

     Standard Christmas admission is $8 per adult and $5 per youth, ages 15 and under.
