Bring the entire family to the Christmas Open House at Hillwood! The hall will be decorated for Christmas, and refreshments will be served. Come and share in the holiday cheer!

This party is open to the public with no admission fees. Unfortunately, due to maintenance, the manor house may not be open during the event. You may RSVP at 901-386-0715. If you are unable to attend, please look for photos of the event on our Facebook page!

Winter Hours


The manor house will be closed beginning Sunday, December 13th, 2015, and will re-open Friday, April 1st, 2016. On Sunday, April 3rd, 2016 we will celebrate the annual History Awards Banquet at Hillwood. The date will also mark the official 2016 opening date for the manor house.

Save the Date!

Davies Manor will host a reenactment event in September of 2016! The event will be held on September 10th and 11th, and will re-create the village and skirmish of Morning Sun. Reenactors will demonstrate historically accurate food, weaponry, and clothing.

Are you interested in getting involved? We're looking for volunteers to take admissions and docents to give tours of the house during the event. If you would like to volunteer or support this event with a financial contribution to Davies Manor, please call Nancy McDonough at 901-386-0715 or email
