LITTLE FALLS-The annual Christmas at the Mansions holiday event will run daily from Friday, Nov. 23, through Dec. 2 at Linden Hill historic estate, 608 Highland Ave., Little Falls.

Both of the mansions-the Weyerhaeuser and Musser-were built in 1898 and will be decorated with a "Holly Jolly Christmas" theme and open for self-guided tours.

Between the two mansions there will be decorated rooms with volunteers in many of the rooms to help tell the story of the two lumber magnate families who once lived in these mansions, the Weyerhaeuser and Musser families. Of these two homes, the Weyerhaeuser mansion is open in the summer for guided tours and the Musser mansion is typically used as a conference/event center and lodging, thus closed to tours, so it is a rare opportunity to view both mansions in the wintertime.

Cookies and hot cider will be available for guests.

Christmas at the Mansions tours will run 1-7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. Adult tickets are $12, students aged 12-17 are $5 and children 11 and under are free. Families and groups of all sizes and ages are welcome.
