Step back in time and celebrate the season at the Historic Fishburn Mansion.

About the Historic Fishburn Mansion
The 42-room Georgian-Revival mansion located in Roanoke’s Mountain View neighborhood was built in 1907 by Junius B. Fishburn. Mr. Fishburn was a prominent publisher, banker, entrepreneur, and philanthropist throughout the Roanoke Valley in the first half of the 20th century. In 1955, he donated his home to the city, with the stipulation that it would be solely used for public recreation purposes. Every year during the holidays, each room of the home is festively decorated, bringing to life the traditions the Fishburn family used to celebrate. More information about the Historic Fishburn Mansion can be found here.
