As the Pumpkineers clean up Silvermont Park from Pumpkin Fest 2018, the Visit page of the Silvermont website was updated today to reflect the new hours of the Second Floor Silvermont Museum, run by the Transylvania Heritage Museum.
“Walk upstairs to the second floor’s beautiful museum, reflecting the era of the original Silvermont mansion family, the Silversteens. The museum is currently managed by the Transylvania Heritage Museum, with trained docents providing guided tours.
The Silvermont second floor museum is open each week (excluding holidays) on Thursdays from 6-7:15 pm and on Fridays from 1-4 pm. from the first of March to the end of October. Private tours can be arranged by calling the Transylvania Heritage Museum at 884- 2347.”
Thanks to those who called this to our attention last week. If you have any comments or input on the website, please provide your comments to bandurragam at gmail dot com, current webmaster.
Thank you very much to the almost 3000 people who attended pumpkin fest over the last 3 weekends, as well as the musicians and volunteers who helped put on a great event. Lots of hard work and fun, for a good cause, to help Silvermont mansion and park via friends of Silvermont. Hope everyone who attended got a chance to see the refinished floors, repainted walls, and new window blinds on the first floor, all of which were paid for by previous fundraisers. Thank you to all for your support.
All, we are watching the weather today and still plan to open up pumpkin fest at Silvermont tonight at 7 pm. If needed can move music in the house and kid activities to the covered porches. Bring rain gear and umbrellas to walk the trail to see lighted pumpkins. Rain should lighten during late afternoon and early evening.
If anything changes, will announce on this page.
Check out Lauren Brigman’s wonderful coverage today! Thank you very much to WLOS for the beautiful shots of a few of the displays.

A hard working crew is busy setting up Silvermont Park for Pumpkin Fest, which takes place the last 3 Fridays and Saturdays in October. Their hard work will pay off in these and many other beautifully lit scenes from 7-9 pm. If you frequent the park during the day, please keep children and dogs off the delicate carved figures so they will be beautiful for all to enjoy.
