- A CENTRAL FLORIDA HOLIDAY TRADITION -
Nov 15, 2019 - Jan 15, 2020
In 2019 USA Today’s 10Best named the Stetson Mansion Holiday Home Tour #1 in Florida and #5 in the nation.
The Stetson Mansion is a spectacular Victorian "Gilded Age" residence built in 1886 with all its original rich architectural details. It is a home and not a museum of any kind. The tours this time of year are all about the meaning of Christmas, not the Stetson history. Each year 10 rooms in the mansion are embellished with new elaborate designer decorations and 24 nativities from around the world. Decorations are new and different each year. Room themes for 2019 will be announced later this year. Visitors will be guided through the first and second floors of the home by a knowledgeable tour guide providing lively commentary as holiday music from the baby grand player piano wafts in the background. The owner/designer might stop in to say hello to your group.
