History-hunters to go round the houses in Christmas buildup
December 19, 2012 by Sarah
‘Three Nights Before Christmas’ is a Colonial Christmas house tour featuring Wallace House and the Old Dutch Parsonage Historic Site. This festive event is truly special and features guided candlelight tours of these two homes, led by guides dressed in period costumes, who explain how the American colonists celebrated Christmas.
Poster printing is likely to have been used to share information about this unique Christmas tour to members of the public. The two homes are decked out with authentic decorations from the 18th century, so guests will enjoy the holiday atmosphere and stay around after the house tours to enjoy refreshments and goodies. All refreshments will be served.
This is a great family event and guests are invited to come out and be social at this cheerful time of year. Tours of these homes are available at 6:00 pm, 7:00 pm, and 8:00 pm, although advanced registration is required no later than tomorrow, December 20. These Christmas house tours last approximately two hours, so please plan enough time so others will not be disturbed during the guided tour.
For anyone who enjoys history, this is an excellent and authentic Christmas house tour. Tickets for this event are $10 per person and advance reservations are a must. Parking is free.
The Three Nights Before Christmas house tour is happening on Saturday, December 22 at the Wallace House located at 71 Somerset Street in Somerville, New Jersey. To reserve a spot for the tour, please visit the Three Nights Before Christmas website or call 908-725-1015.
