Schreiner Mansion Tours
The Hill Country Youth Orchestras (HCYO) will host tours of the historic Schreiner Mansion (the Mansion) to raise funding for tuition scholarships and music education for the organization. The Mansion, at 226 Earl Garrett Street in Kerrville, TX has undergone extensive remodeling and will be fully decorated for the holiday season. The docent lead tours will feature a new 15 minute historic video about the Schreiner family and the Mansion. Following each tour guests will enjoy cookies and wassail.The Mansion, in the heart of downtown, was completed in 1897 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. San Antonio architect Alfred Giles designed the limestone home which is characterized by a combination of the Romanesque Revival and Chateauesque style. The Mansion has served as an elegant home for the family of Captain Charles Schreiner, the Masonic Lodge, the Hill Country Museum and an education center for Schreiner University during the last 135 years. The Mansion is currently an events center and available for groups along with a fenced garden that backs up to the Peterson Plaza.
HCYO is the only tuition free orchestra program in the country and each year more than 150 Texas Hill Country students participate in the HCYO orchestra program.
