COFFEYVILLE — Montgomery County’s most-famous residence, the historic Brown Mansion in Coffeyville, has a new glow for the holiday season.
The Brown Mansion is decorated to the hilt in holiday splendor for a series of candlelight tours that will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sundays during December.
The three-story, 16-room mansion, which was built in 1906 for industrialist W.P. Brown and his family, has hosted holiday tours in the past. However, this year marks the third year that the mansion is filled with Christmas trees and decorations provided by Coffeyville organizations and businesses. Darla Thornburg of the Coffeyville Historical Society, which owns and manages the mansion, said the decorated trees, garland and other decorations will bring a special touch of the holidays to mansion visitors.
The candlelit tours will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Dec. 10, 11, 18 and 22) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., for $5 per person. Guided tours will be held on Sundays (Dec 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23) at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Admission is $6.50 per person.
