The Stones River Woman's Club will hold its Christmas Open House on Dec. 7-8 at the Two Rivers Mansion.
Two Rivers Mansion is at 3130 McGavock Pike in Donelson. The elegant Italianate mansion will be embellished in holiday splendor for the annual event that will feature a bake sale and self-guided tours of the fully decorated mansion. Docents will be in each room to answer any questions.
The open house hours will be Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Dec. 8 from 12:30-3:30 p.m. Santa Claus will be available Dec. 8 from 1-3 p.m. to pose for photos with young visitors without charge. Weather permitting, the 1802 House will also be open for tours.
Admission to the open house is $5 at the door, and children younger than 10 will be admitted for free. Refreshments will be served. There will also be a bake sale that will feature homemade desserts. The public is invited to attend. Profits will go toward the maintenance of the mansion's interior and other community projects sponsored by the Stones River Woman's Club
Two Rivers Mansion was completed in 1859, and remained in the McGavock family until 1965. In 1966, the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County bought the mansion. Since 1979, the Stones River Woman’s Club has donated more than $90,000 for restoration and redecoration projects at the mansion.
