After Thanksgiving, a virtual tour of the decorated historic Durkee Mansion will be available online.
This year’s Durkee Mansion theme is “Magical Lantern Glow”, in honor of the 150th year of Kemper Hall, when alumnae carried lanterns in procession. Each year, the Durkee Mansion is decorated by dedicated, talented volunteers in a different theme incorporating period accurate holiday décor from the 1860s. All decorations are either handmade or antique.
The Anderson Arts Center, located across from the Durkee Mansion, at 6603 3rd Avenue, will be open Tuesdays-Fridays from 1:00-4:00PM. Admission is free.
Learn more about the history of the Durkee Mansion on our Durkee Mansion history page.
We will be taking COVID-19 precautions and limiting capacity, requiring masks inside the building, and encouraging social distancing.
