The tour captures turn-of-the-century life as the prominent Moss Family lived it. Guests will see original draperies, furniture, fixtures, Persian carpets and artifacts displayed in the 1903 red sandstone structure designed by New York architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh.
Come and visit during these ‘cabin fever’ days of winter. We are warm and cozy, our Docents are friendly, and this house is amazing! The tours start at 1, 2, and 3pm and the gift shop is open during tour hours. Park on Yellowstone or Clark Streets and linger in the sunshine if you can!
The people have spoken! The 2014 Winner of the Moss Mansion Christmas Trees People’s Choice Award, chosen by hundreds of visitors to the Moss Mansion, is ‘Zoo MT Through the Decades’ by Zoo Montana! Congratulations! First Runner Up is ‘Through the Pages of Time’ in the Library by Rimrock-Leading Addiction Treatment; Second Runner Up is the ‘Decking the Halls with M&M’s’ tree in the Kitchen by Christmas to Remember, and Third Runner Up is the ‘1950’s’ tree in the Master Bedroom by Thumb-R-Green Garden Club.
Our Staff votes to select the Best Theme Interpretation Award. This year that award goes to Rimrock-Leading Addiction Treatment Foundation. Their ‘Through the Pages of Time’ tree in the Library was perfectly suited to the room and the hand-made decorations reflected the ‘Decking the Halls Through the Decades’ theme with examples of great works in print throughout history. The First Runner Up is the ‘Feeding America Through the Decades’ tree in the Dining Room by Montana Agri-Women; Second Runner Up is the ‘1860’s Pioneer Christmas’ tree in the Girl’s Apartment by Billings Audubon, and Third Runner Up is ‘Heroes Past and Present’ in the Nursery by Community Day Care.
Volunteers from Billings’ charities and non-profits decorate the Christmas Trees at the Moss each year, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the beauty that brings the season to life for all who visit the Moss Mansion this time of year. The winners are awarded a cash prize to their charity. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all our guests and the volunteers who voted and decorated!
