This holiday season, the Society will bring magic back to the Kearney Mansion Museum & Gallery with our annual display of Christmas at Kearney. The Mansion will be filled with decorated trees, each representing a local decorator's interpretation of a favorite Christmas Carol for our Timeless Toys theme.
From November 25 through New Year's Eve, guests will learn the history classic toys, each of which are more than 50 years old, still loved by children today and many listed in the Nation Toy Museum's Hall of Fame. Additionally, guests will tour the Kearney Mansion and learn the history of M. Theo Kearney and the Fruit Vale Estate. Special events are planned during the month, including a Meet & Greet with Santa and Holiday Tea Parties. Details are listed below.
