Lockwood-Mathews Museum


A Victorian Christmas was the theme for this holiday house at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk, Connecticut, a National Historic Landmark dating to 1868. A custom-made sugar gazebo graces the mantle with sugar Christmas trees, and elaborate swags of fruit-embellished evergreens were in keeping with the traditions of the era. The only thing missing was Mrs. Cratchit.  You might have seen rooms from the mansion in the 2004 film version of The Stepford Wives.
