Allandale Mansion is continuing a decades long tradition this holiday season by opening its doors to the public and letting folks enjoy room after room of Christmas decorations.
The Allandale Mansion Christmas Tours will take place on December 2 (from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.) and on December 3 (from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.). Tickets will be available at the door and are priced as follows:
- Ages 12 and up: $3 (cash only)
- Children 6-12: $1 (cash only)
- Children under 6: Free
The Christmas tours are self-guided and normally take around 30 minutes to an hour. The mansion will have people on hand throughout the house to answer any questions about Allandale and its history.
Cookies and hot cider will be offered on both days. Harpist Martha Painter will be performing on December 3 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. while Santa Claus himself will pay the mansion a visit on December 3 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Allandale Mansion was built in the early 1950s and donated to the city of Kingsport in 1969 after the death of its owner, Harvey Brooks. The property includes the mansion, two barns, a picnic pavilion, two man-made ponds, the Heron Dome and a 2,000-square-foot amphitheater.
Please note, Allandale Mansion can be rented during the holidays for events and photo sessions. For more information call 229-9422.
