Festive Tours of Bush-Holley House by Candlelight

Enjoy a unique candle-lit evening tour featuring stories of early colonial-period American holiday traditions and late-19th century Christmas celebrations enjoyed at the Holley family’s boarding house. Guides stationed in each historic room of the house will offer insights into the holidays celebrated at the home during these 30-45 minute tour targeted for adults and families of all ages. We ask that children are accompanied by an adult. Tours will be limited to 10 guests per room, and we ask that all guests wear masks while indoors.
