Tour Victorian Farmhouse Christmas at Neely Mansion on Dec. 2

Victorian Farmhouse Christmas at Neely Mansion – a benefit for one of the valley's treasures – is Dec. 2.

Tour the historic Victorian Classic Revival farmhouse, decorated for the holidays, with docents in period dress and enjoy light refreshments and explore the gift shop.

Proceeds go toward operating expenses and the continuing restoration of the county, state and national landmark, built by one of Washington Territory's – and South King County's – earliest and most influential pioneer families. The house and grounds reflect their legacy and that of the ethnic tenant farmers who lived there through the 1970s.

Tour times are 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Cost is $15 per person.

Advance reservations are required. To register, call 253-850-2777.

The Neely Mansion is located at 12303 Auburn-Black Diamond Road, Auburn, just east of the Highway 18/Auburn-Black Diamond Road exit.
