Nooks and Crannies Tour of Kokomo’s Seiberling Mansion

05/07/2017

Ever wonder what what’s hidden behind closed doors in the Seiberling Mansion? Are there skeletons or a dungeon? Clandestine passageways?* 

Find out for yourself when the Howard County Historical Society conducts a Nooks and Crannies Tour of the mansion on Sunday, May 7th, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes at the museum and will see, among other things, some of the areas affected by the deteriorating roof. The historical society is now engaged in a campaign to “Save Our Seiberling” by replacing its original slate roof.
Admission to the museum and mansion will be free of charge during the special tour, but donations to the roof campaign are suggested and will be appreciated. There will also be an ice cream social on the porch and grounds during the event, with homemade cakes, ice cream donated by Sam’s Club, and live music.

It may be years before this opportunity comes again, so don’t miss the fun on May 7th. The mansion is located at 1200 W. Sycamore St., Kokomo, IN 46901. Off-street parking is available, with entry from W. Walnut St. For further information, contact the historical society at 765-452-4314 or by email at info@howardcountymuseum.org .

*Spoiler alert: no skeletons, sorry, and no dungeon, but the basement is kinda cool. The passageways aren’t the least bit clandestine, either, but the stairs to the attic are pretty freaky. Did we mention the hidden treasures?
