The January full moon is called the Wolf Moon because in days past the wolves could be heard howling at this time of the year. We do not have wolves to listen to but who knows what we might see or hear during a moon walk; owls, fox, deer or other creatures of the winter night. Even if we do not see any wildlife it will be interesting to observe the wetlands, woodlands and fields by the light of the Moon. Snowshoes will be available if needed.
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.
