Take a step back in time…

Join us for a free Christmas Open house at one of Roanoke’s beloved historic mansions. The Fishburn Mansion is a 42-room, Georgian-revival home, now known as the Mountain View Recreation Center. During the holidays, Roanoke Parks and Recreation decks the mansion’s halls with its finest festive decorations and invites the community to enjoy a Christmas Open House tour and refreshments.

The home was built in 1907 by Junius B. Fishburn, a prominent publisher, banker, entrepreneur and philanthropist throughout the Roanoke Valley in the first half of the 20th century. Each room of the home will bring to life the festive traditions that the family used to celebrate the holiday season. Through a self-guided tour, you will learn about the history of the home and explore the legacy that Mr. Fishburn left behind.

Stay tuned for more information about the 2021 Christmas Open house.
