The Castle announced today plans to offer Victorian Christmas Tours to ring in the holiday season. Tours will be held on Thursday, December 16 and Saturday, December 18 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
“We are excited to offer two dates this holiday season for Victorian Christmas Tours of The Castle,” said Kyle Yoho, Education Director of The Castle. Yoho added, “The Victorian era home is beautifully decorated for Christmas and our tour guides look forward to sharing the history and legends tied to many of our modern holiday traditions during this special evening tour.” “We’ll take a look at how the Davis family celebrated Christmas in the late 1880s brought to life through the stories of knowledgeable tour guides, special displays, and an art installation featuring the work of Abigail Litman,” stated Yoho. According to Yoho, The Castle will also have a whimsical winter feel made possible by artistic snowflakes provided by local schools on display throughout the tour.
