Every November, the Ellwood House Museum partners with area businesses, community sponsors, and volunteers to decorate the mansion room-by-room on all four floors. From November 15-30, the guided holiday tours give visitors the opportunity to see the mansion in a new light.

At the end of regular tour season, the Ellwood House opens the doors for a three-day Holiday Open House weekend. Volunteers will be stationed in each room, presenting the history of the home and the Ellwood family.
