Upcoming Events

July 17 & July 18, 2021 | 11am – 5pm CST | Vrooman HandMade Art Show & Sale

  • Admission will be $3 at the door and all entry proceeds will go towards the restoration of the iconic stained glass windows at Vrooman Mansion.
  • Please enter from the porch on 701 E Taylor Street.

Creative energy is a part of the mansion from the vibrant colors of each room, to the inspired architecture, and iconic stained-glass windows. Julia Vrooman herself was a writer and author, so it’s only fitting that the creative influence continues and expands this summer, with the Vrooman HandMade Art Show & Sale. Come out and support local artists, tour the main floor of the mansion, and enjoy the lovely gardens!
