An invitation to Chamber Business After Hours

To the Editor,

The Lyons' family is looking forward to greeting Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce members and their guests for the Business After Hours event Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Twin Mansion, 750 South National Ave.

We are eager for you to meet our family and staff -- the talented and dedicated people who create and maintain this magical place. Our chef, Miss Lori, is planning her signature appetizers for nibbling and we will offer complimentary peach tea and bottled waters. In the library at the mansion, a cash bar features premium liquors for cocktails, Yellow Tail wines by the bottle or glass, Boulevard Wheat on tap, and a nice variety of beers. There is a pool table in the sun room -- want to play?

Please bring guests and enjoy seeing this beautiful home that is now available for business meetings, private parties, weddings and receptions. Book your Christmas party now!

After 130 years, the Twin Mansions on the Prairie are back in the family! The Twin Mansions are together again as Nate and daughter Addison join Nate's parents Larry and Miss Pat to care for, protect and develop these Victorian treasures. Miss Pat's legendary style and Southern hospitality combine well with Nate's temperate masculine approach and keen business sense. A very nice balance is achieved with this mother and son team.

We look forward to Lyons Twin Mansions being part of your lives for decades to come as a fine destination for all of life's celebrations.

The Twin Mansions on the Prairie dominated the landscape in the 1870s regally perched atop the highest rise on the prairie a full mile from the safety of the Fort. Today the rugged distance is subtly softened by trees, lovely homes, brick streets and the easy transportation of automobiles. Suitable furnished for large and small gatherings, the Twin Mansions await to serve their guests.

This year Lyons Twin Mansions will be featured on the Homes for the Holidays tour, Dec. 7, in the evening for Moonlight and Mistletoe and on Dec. 8 and 9 during the day. Theme for the Twin Mansions: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue -- visit each room to discover the whimsy. Twenty-six years ago was Nate's first Homes for the Holidays -- we'll have the pictures displayed! And this year he will present his own Twin Mansion for tour. What a great Fort Scott story!
