Candlelight Tours

December 10, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm

Step back in time to the Christmas season in the 1800s and discover Elizabeth Ann Seton’s inspirational story from those who knew her best. A guide will lead you by lantern to the historic homes decorated for the Christmas season.

You’ll encounter beloved friends of Elizabeth Ann Seton who will share stories of her life, as well as the legacy that they’ve continued since her death in 1821. Plus, enjoy our grounds illuminated with 1,000 luminaries. This is the only time of the year when you can see the two homes, where Elizabeth Ann Seton lived and worked, lit by candlelight.

Candlelight Tours are available December 2-5 and 9-14, at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm. Tickets are $10/adult, $7/youth ages 7-18 and free for children ages 6 and under.
