Glensheen's New Holiday Tour

Created: 12/23/2013 8:44 AM WDIO.com

Glensheen Mansion has a new holiday tour available for visitors, and Interim Director Dan Hartman dropped by the show to tell us about it!

The new holiday tour is a self-guided experience. Dan says that many visitors in the past have said that they would prefer to look around the mansion a bit themselves, rather than on just guided tours. However, visitors won't be given free reign, there will be period-costumed staff stationed around Glensheen. 

The house will be adorned with more than 15 decorated trees, and over 500 feet of garland. And there will be a treat to try too!  Clara Congdon's holiday shortbread recipe will be available to taste.

Children 12 and under will be admitted free with a paid adult ticket.  Adult tickets are $10. The holiday tour runs on December 28th & 29th, and January 4th & 5th from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM at the Glensheen Mansion.
