Candlelight Tours is a magical excursion. Imagine walking through an entire historic town at night guided by the glow of old-fashioned lamps. On this wonderful tour, you can journey through three-hundred years of tradition and discover how America's most festive season came to be.

The town is illuminated by candles, oil lamps, and the warmth of a flickering hearth, and enlivened by holidays sweets. You'll travel from house to house as you visit the people from days of old. You'll be welcomed by these humble early Americans and get a taste of life gone by. 

Your tour ends with a festive Wassail Bown Reception in the Courthouse!
