The Dexter Area Historical Society is ringing in the holidays Victorian style this weekend for its "Christmas at the Mansion" fundraiser.
Members of the society have decked out six rooms in festive decor at Gordon Hall, the home of village founder Judge Samuel Dexter, and will treat vistitors to tours of the mansion from noon to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
"The mansion is such a beautiful piece of architecture and an elegant piece of Dexter's history," event chairwoman Julie Knight said.
Residents can take a self-guided tour of the mansion and enjoy homemade cookies and hot cider, carolers on the porch and photos with Santa in an antique sleigh. Museum staff will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have.
Knight said the decorations in each of the mansion's ground floor rooms were sponsored by local businesses including , , , , and L&J Landscaping.
The tours are free but there is a suggested donation of $5 per adult and $1 per child ages 5-12. Proceeds from the event will go to the museum's operating budget.
