Also, a holiday arts and crafts market will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the two-room Pikes Peak School across the street.
The Murray-Lindsay Mansion features the home and furnishings of Irish immigrant Frank Murray and his Choctaw wife, Alzira McCaughey, according to travelok.com.
