Guided tours of the Mansion are only offered on Saturdays at 12 noon and 2 PM. Barker Mansion is a 1900 house museum built by John H. Barker, railroad industrialist. The Mansion contains many Barker household items and original artwork. The turn-of the-century style garden, centered with a pool and brick walkways, contains colorful annuals, roses and perennials. Wicker chairs, sundial, griffon bench, traditional garden sculpture items and hanging ferns complete the late Victorian scene.
