Ellwood House Museum presents Holiday Traditions

Thursday, November 15, 2018 - Sunday, December 2, 2018

Each November, the Ellwood House Museum partners with area businesses, community sponsors, and volunteers to decorate the mansion room-by-room on all four floors. From November 15-29, our guided holiday tours give visitors the opportunity to see the mansion in a new light.

At the end of our regular tour season, they open the doors for a three-day Holiday Open House weekend. Visitors to the open house will enjoy live music as they tour the mansion, and tour guides will be stationed on each level to share the history of the home and the Ellwood family. Other event highlights included a visit from Santa and refreshments in the Visitor Center.  See hours of operations below.
