Two Historic Mansions in Illinois Are Opening For Special Holiday Tours
Two beautiful and historic mansions in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, David Davis Mansion and Ewing Manor, have been all dressed in their holiday best and will be opening their doors for public tours coming up on December 10, 2022.
Tour Two Of Illinois' Historic Mansions This Holiday Season
Christmas decorations are one of my favorite things in the world, and honestly, seeing how other people decorate their homes is fascinating to me. Whether it be outdoor or indoor decorations, I love looking at them all, so when I see home tours happening during the holiday season, I'm all in.
As an Illinois State University graduate, I am ashamed to admit that I never knew two amazing mansions existed in the Bloomington/Normal area. One is called Ewing Manor, and the other is called David Davis Mansion, and lucky for us, both of them will be open for our viewing pleasure this holiday season.
Although both the Ewing Manor and David Davis Mansion are open for tours year-round and have fascinating historical stories to tell, it sure sounds like the holiday season is the best time of the year to check them out when they are all dressed to the 9s. Both of these mansions are a part of the Christmas At The Mansions event going on in Bloomington, Illinois on Saturday, December 10 from 2 to 7 p.m.
Here's what you can expect at these unique tours according to the Christmas At The Mansions event page;
see these gorgeous homes decorated in period Christmas finery. Take in the architecture, the historic holiday postcard settings and hosts dressed in period costumes as you walk back in time to the late 1800s and early 1900s. Music and other surprises will complement your tour!
Tickets for Christmas At The Mansions are $16 per person online and will be available at the door on the day of the event for $20 each, (kids 3 and under are free).
