Our special annual Christmas Candlelight Tour will be held on Friday, December 7th from 6:00-8:00. Come hear how Christmas was celebrated in the 1800s from costumed actors stationed inside the historic home! The Southeast Texas Dulcimer Friends will play seasonal favorites in Heritage Hall where there will be Christmas crafts for children like those the French family might have made. To top it all off, a period appropriate Santa Clause will be here for visits with little ones and there will be a caroling hayride around the French Museum grounds! The evening will culminate with a reading of “A Visit From St. Nicholas (Twas the Night Before Christmas) on the front porch at 7:55 pm.
Light refreshments will be provided. This family-friendly event promises to get you in the holiday spirit and return you to a simpler time when this historic home sat on the Texas frontier! Admission is $5.00 (ages 4+)
