Christmas Behind the Scenes Tour

December 8 and 15 at 6 pm Central Time

Have you toured Michigan City’s Barker Mansion in the past but were left wondering what was behind closed doors? A Christmas Behind the Scenes Tour will offer guests a look at the typically off-limits spaces of the historic home. The two-hour tour begins at 6 pm Central Time and ventures into the basement where an old electrical panel, laundry room and summer kitchen can be found. The tour also includes a look at former servant’s quarters and allows guests into the archives, storage areas and rooms that are typically roped off during regular tours. Adding to the visual display this month are ten Christmas trees throughout the home.

“We’re taking our typical Behind the Scenes Tour and giving it a Christmas twist,” said Director Jessica Rosier. “Our Heritage Interpreters will be weaving in tales of Victorian Christmas traditions the Barkers may have enjoyed, plus folks will get to see the Christmas storage areas where we keep our hundreds of ornaments and pieces of décor.”

The Barker Mansion is located at 631 Washington Street in Michigan City, IN. The 38-room mansion was built by freight car industrialist and philanthropist John H. Barker in 1905, after he expanded onto his father’s original 1857 home on the same site. Cost is $15 per adult and $10 per youth, ages 15 and under.
