The Victoria Mansion is always a fun place to visit, but especially at Christmas with every room decorated with a Christmas theme. The staff is so informative and knowledgeable. A great gift shop is available to browse or purchase items.

The story of the house is very engaging if you consider the exact period it was built (Civil War--by a southerner). The docents are very knowledgeable and the Christmas decorations are lovely.
