Candlelight Tours - Dec 5 & 6, 2008

"The Night Before Christmas: December 24, 1860"

Guests were invited to attend a candelight tour of the Colonel Palmer House, which depicted a historic Christmas Eve shortly after the home was built by Gustavus and Henrietta Palmer.

Small tour groups were led through the house by costumed docents.  Actors portrayed Palmer family members readying themselves for their Christmas celebration the following day.  Music, decorating, food and gifts of the mid-19th century were featured.
