St. Patrick's Day at the Mansion - Saturday, Mar. 16th ... Missing Downton Abbey? Come see us! - Free

Anyone who misses the behind-the-scenes intrigue of "Downton Abbey" will want to visit the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site on Saturday, March 16th, for a look at the lives of servants and their employers.

Costumed storytellers will portray Irish servants who worked for the Davis family at their Victorian mansion. Visitors can talk with the servants rushing to complete their chores, and then hear what the Davis family members have to say about the staff.

The free, family-friendly "Upstairs/Downstairs at Bloomington's Downton Abbey" event runs from 9am-3:30pm Saturday, March 16th.

Meet characters like Bridget, the cook, who occupies a special position in the household because she's an expert with the Magee Range. She gives the stove a workout during her daily responsibilities and she will describe how she prepares food and determines how many pieces of coal it takes to bake a cake. But visitors should be careful or they might wind up helping with the chores throughout the house!
