Mansion Must Make Money Elsewhere

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

The 30th year will be the last year of Christmas at the Conrad Mansion in Kalispell.

Friday, October 25 the mansion is hosting its annual preview party with champagne and desserts.

The following weekend is the holiday bazaar, costing five dollars at the door.

For thirty years this has been the main fundraiser for the mansion, providing the bulk of the annual budget to maintain the grounds, but declining numbers have forced officials to try a new tradition.

"We're going to try to do something else next year. We're not really sure what it's going to be, but there is something in the works," said Margo Jaumott, the mansion's assistant director.

Jaumott says it costs three hundred fifty dollars each day to keep the Conrad Mansion open.
