Morning and afternoon tours will be offered Wednesdays, Dec. 4, 11 and 18. Adult tour guests must present photo identification and those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The circa-1908 mansion, the oldest building on Capitol Campus, is traditionally adorned for the holidays with floral arrangements, wreaths and seasonal lights.
