Seelye Mansion Christmas Tours - 2017

. Holiday tours begin the day after Thanksgiving and continue to mid-January.

The Seelye Mansion is one of the finest homes in Kansas. A New York architect designed the new home in Georgian style for Dr. and Mrs. A.B. Seelye in 1904. It was built in 1905 at a cost of $55,000. The mansion contains the original furniture and Edison light fixtures. You will tour 25 rooms, including eleven bedrooms, ballroom, bowling alley, and kitchen areas. Special items of interest are the beautiful dining room, music room with gold French furniture and Steinway Grand piano, library, and the Tiffany-designed fireplace in the grand hall.

The Patent Medicine Museum contains many artifacts of the A.B. Seelye Medical Company. Founded in 1890, more than 100 products were sold over a 14-state area. Best known cure-alls included Wasa-Tusa, Fro-zona, and Ner-vena.

An important part of touring the Seelye Mansion is enjoying the beautiful yard and gardens that surround the historic home. The patio and fish pond have been restored using 1905 landscape drawings.
