Saturday evening I went to the open house, Holidays at the Mansion, at the Victorian House Museum in Millersburg Ohio. The mansion is an impressive structure with beautiful Queen Anne Victorian architecture. The event is sponsored by the Holmes County Historical Society and numerous area organizations and businesses who come in to decorate the mansion for the holidays. The event started at 7pm with candle lights and the singing of “Noel”, a Christmas carol, on the front porch and lawn. There was music, a piano and guitar, along with the singing of holiday songs throughout the evening as well as a great selection of cookies, punch, and coffee. On display were beautiful Christmas trees, wreaths, and a special display, Faces of Santa, a large collection of hand-painted Santa figurines. The mansion has 3 floors, 28 rooms, a plethora of beautiful antiques on display, and is one of the “must see” places in Holmes County Ohio. The museum will continue to offer self-guided tours of the mansion throughout the holidays. For more details and a map: Victorian House Museum.
