Glencoe Mansion to Host Holiday Open House today at 4:30

RADFORD, VA—Let the Glencoe Mansion help get you into the holiday spirit, and while you’re here check out some great holiday shopping ideas. All this will be at our Holiday Open House on Thursday, December 5, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.

We’ll be debuting our newly redesigned Glencoe Gallery Gift Shop!  Visit with local musicians and writers who have their CDs and Books available.  Many other gift ideas in our shop include: jewelry, art, photographic cards, jams, metal work, antiques and vintage items.

JBR Vineyards will be at the Holiday Open House selling wine by the glass. They’ll also have bottles available for sale, which makes for another great gift idea. JBR Vineyards is a family-owned and operated, local Virginia Farm Winery.

The museum will be done up in holiday style to reflect Christmas past. You’ll feel like you’re walking through Christmas from the Edwardian era through the Jazz Age. The dining room of the mansion will be sponsored and designed by the Events Department of New River Valley RENT-ALL, highlighting how event coordinator Randy Kirchner can make your own event special. The Christmas displays, which can be seen through January 5, are possible through loans from Sarah and Ralph Arthur, Montgomery Museum and Billy Simpkins.

The featured authors include Chelsea Adams, Grace Toney Edwards, Donia Eley, Simone Poirier-Bures, Tim Poland and Jessee Ring. The musicians featured include Tim and Georgeanne Lavery, Bruce Mahin and Robert Trent.
