Costumed guides lead visitors on a candle lit tour of the home decorated in holiday splendor by local florists. As visitors learn about holiday traditions of the Seward family in the 19th century, actors portraying various members of the family emerge to share holiday recollections gleaned from the letters and diaries. Tours end with Christmas carols sung around the family’s 1872 Steinway piano.  Space is limited, reservations required.
