Omaha’s Joslyn Castle hosted an “unlocking” on Saturday, Dec. 8, to get the community in the Christmas spirit.

The castle was decorated with elegant trees and twinkling lights. The mood was joyous.

For the first hour of the event, visitors freely roamed Joslyn Castle’s first floor. Dinner followed in the music room, with a tour of the castle after dinner.

A limited number of guests had access to this event. Guests had the opportunity to view original furniture and clothing from the castle’s original inhabitants, Sarah and George Joslyn.

Event organizers spoke about the structure’s architectural elements and shared stories about how the Joslyns became Omaha’s first millionaires.
