A National Historic Landmark since 1971, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is regarded as one of the earliest and most significant Second Empire Style country houses in the United States.
The Museum kicks off the Holiday Season with a new exhibition entitled, "Toys, Trains and Magnificent Trees: Illuminating Christmas at the Mansion," which will capture the enchantment of the holiday season, with glamorous tree displays, while paying special tribute to the sesquicentennial of the Transcontinental Railroad.
A subject matter explored by some of the great artists of the 19th and early 20th centuries, such as Claude Monet, Edward Hopper, and Camille Pissarro, railroads and stations are familiar places that continue to inspire contemporary artists and impact society and the environment.
"Health, Healing & Addiction in 19th Century America" will explore how families managed their health in the 19th century. It will investigate what history can teach us about the Germ Theory, technology, and the extraordinary breakthroughs that rocked the medical establishment leading to the birth of modern medicine.
