A true Victorian treasure, the Glenmore Mansion sits atop a picturesque hill in historic Jefferson City. The original mansard roof and dormer windows appropriately adorn the mansion, built in 1868.
Legend has it the number of windows one can count from the outside does not equal the number of windows inside the mansion. The Glenmore Garden Market is held each year on the first Saturday in May to celebrate the opening of tour season which runs through October
If you’re looking for a location to hold any sort of event, regardless of the size, Glenmore Mansion is an ideal setting.
Luncheons, baby and wedding showers, birthday and anniversary celebrations, even family reunions work quite well at Glenmore.
Year-round, Glenmore Mansion is a popular location for both indoor and outdoor weddings.
During spring and summer, our gardens are enjoyed by visitors.
