Enjoy a leisurely afternoon playing the "Queen of Games" at historic Cliffside Mansion!


Bring your own Steampunked mallet or use those provided and compete in 9-Wicket

Croquet (according to the rules set forth by the U. S. Croquet Association).


Lemonade, tea, and light snacks will be served on fine linens and silver -- a proper English afternoon Croquet!



Cliffside Mansion was built by the famed architect Howard VanDoren Shaw in 1912 for lumber baron W. B. Pettibone. One of the features of the mansion is a croquet lawn nestled in the back courtyard between two stately fountains; all of the french doors of the rooms on the first floor open out to this lawn. You'll enjoy both the splendor of the fine home and the elegance of the croquet lawn and surroundings during the competition.


Participation fee is only $10 per person, please join us for a relaxing afternoon on the lawn of this beautiful Hannibal mansion!
