Hotels Close to Seelye Mansion
Terry Tietjens who owns the house, conducts most of the tours and served as my guide the day I visited the Seelye Mansion. Terry has lead several historic preservation projects including the Kirby House Mansion which is a restaurant, a 100 year old stone church which is now Tietjens Center for the Performing Arts, and a current project to restore the Old Abilene Town theme park. But visiting the Seelye Mansion isn't like looking at fragile relics in a museum, Terry insists that visitors sit on the chairs and touch the furnishings. He even had me try my luck on the 1905 bowling alley (I was terrible), operated many of the old Edison music machines and phonographs, and played the pianos and pump organs. You may wish to schedule your visit to the Seelye Mansion for the Christmas s...
