The manor is decorated for the holiday season, with Steve Miller of Paddy and the Pale Boys playing the hammered dulcimer throughout the afternoon. Guided tours will be conducted at the top of each hour (1, 2 & 3pm), so please plan to arrive no later than 3pm to tour this Georgian-style manor, constructed of local stone, with two foot thick stone walls and three immense chimneys, and learn about Warren County's early iron industry and the people who worked in it.
