About the Full Mansion tour
This self-guided tour not only showcases all five floors of the mansion but also 25 Christmas Trees and 25 Hidden Elves. Be sure to enjoy the extras, soak in the luxurious interiors, and stories of the Congdon family.
The previously closed Third Floor and Attic are included on the Full Mansion tour. The Third Floor showcases the Congdon Boys’ rooms and even a few rooms that have recently been restored back to their original glory. The attic exposes the bones of the home where you’ll see the steel and concrete that keep this home standing tall. Plus, in the attic, there are many unique items such as the original rugs and rare furniture.
This tour is a self-guided experience of the lower level, first floor, second floor, third floor, and attic.
Interpretive signage and downloadable app with audio tour available.
Est. Time: 1.5 hours.
