“We were excited with this year’s theme because it gave the decorators an opportunity to highlight old favorites, like Beatrix Potter, as well as to be inspired by new favorites, such as Harry Potter,” Curator Patti Larkin explains. “While much of our content today arrives electronically there’s still a strong connection to printed books. Whether it’s a classic or just a light tale that piques our personal interest, the stories in books continue to resonate.”
Over 70 volunteers began developing their designs for 18 rooms of the Mansion last January. During the exhibit, volunteer musicians will be playing in the Music Room providing Christmas carols and festive music.
