At Vrooman Mansion, you will love the beautiful and historic ambiance of a bygone era – a time where silver tea and garden parties, candlelight suppers, and fashionable soirees were the order of the day.

We host many public affairs during the year. From Downton Abbey themed fashion shows, Steampunk brunches, Titanic 9-course dinners, Gone with the Wind and other themed afternoon teas, A Day in Historic Dimmitt’s Grove, to Holiday Christmas tours, these experiences give visitors a special look into the Mansion and Central Illinois.

For all of the above events, ticket sales are limited and on sale a couple months prior to the event. Please check our Facebook page for details. Sign up for our newsletter (signup is in the footer at the bottom of the page) to be notified of upcoming events – you won’t want to miss them!
