Event description

Description

Come to the new Greenwich Historical Society for a free, festive holiday evening when docents lead “candlelight” tours through National Historic Landmark Bush-Holley House, decorated for the holidays. In addition to family-friendly tours of Bush-Holley House, there will be live music, hot chocolate, seasonal goodies, winter-themed crafts for kids and a special appearance by Santa Claus from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

Candlelight tours take roughly 45 minutes and focus on Christmas traditions as celebrated by the Bush family in the New Nation period and later by the Holley family, residents in the early 1900s. Tours begin at 5:00 in the Vanderbilt Education Center and leave every 15 minutes until 6:30. Tours often become completely booked and reservations can only be made in person during the event.

Visitors will be also able to see the galleries and the new museum building.

Entrance to the event is through the new museum lobby; doors will open at 4:30pm.
