It takes time to get ready for the holidays, especially for a house and property the size of the one formerly owned by Charles Kelley King.

Kingwood Center Gardens in Mansfield is closed for almost the entire month of November as they work to get the house and grounds ready for the annual Christmas season tours. They will re-open on November 30.

They have already started to work on decorations inside the house. Those visiting during the holiday season can expect to see the 2-story Christmas tree in the grand foyer, as in years past. The tree is decorated annually by Kingwood staff, Board members and their families. In addition, the rooms on the first and second floor such as the ballroom, library and dining room, will be dressed up to show off for the season. Although we know that the gardens will be beautified too, we don’t yet know what the staff at Kingwood has planned. Last year’s Trail of Lights featured over 200 lighted trees.

A reminder that, if you do plan to visit after Kingwood re-opens on November 30, work continues on the Garden Gateway Visitor Center. Take note of signs for parking. Visit the Kingwood website (link: for hours and additional information.
