Christmas at Overlynn Mansion Nov. 24 and 25.

One of the province’s best preserved heritage mansions is being transformed for its eighth annual holiday salute, Christmas at Overlynn Mansion.

The mansion, on the grounds of seniors housing complex Seton Villa at 401 N. Esmond in North Burnaby, will be open for the event Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 24 and 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Guided tours of the 1909 mansion are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Admission is by donation and includes door prizes and complimentary apple cider and cookies. Works by artisans, specialty gifts, and baked goods will be available for sale.

The event raises money for Seton Villa, which is operated by the non-profit Action Line Housing Society and provides affordable supportive and assisted living housing for seniors.
