The exhibit, curated by Trustee Mimi Findlay and the LMMM Curatorial Committee, will capture the enchantment of the holiday season, with glamorous tree displays, while paying special tribute to the sesquicentennial of the Transcontinental Railroad.

Toy trains will be displayed under the tree in the Museum’s Library to mark the railroad’s anniversary and highlight LeGrand Lockwood’s invention known as the Palace Car. Vintage toy trains on display are from the LMMM Permanent Collection as well as on loan from the Wilton Historical Society.

The Mansion will also feature 21st century holiday decorations with magnificent trees and seasonal displays by renowned interior designer Victoria Vandamm of Vandamm Interiors and award-winning Trudy Dujardin of Dujardin Design Associates, Inc. The Herter Brothers’ grand Victorian staircase will be adorned by silk floral designer, Danna DiElsi, owner of The Silk Touch.
