Christmas Candlelight Tours will take place at the Historic John Work House at Historic Tunnel Mill in Charlestown on December 6 and 7 and December 13 and 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. Tours of the historic house will be conducted throughout the evening.
The John Work House, a National Register of Historic Places site, was built in 1811 and is currently undergoing restoration. The house will be decorated in a fashion appropriate to the early 19th century and illuminated with over 70 hand-dipped candles. Costumed
reenactors will be in and around the house interpreting life in the historic period. Shop for unique historical items in the gift shop as well!
There is no charge for the tours; however, a small donation for the restoration project is encouraged. Cookies and hot drinks will be provided as long as they last!
Off-and-on interpretive programs throughout the night will include live historical music, historic holiday traditions, and much more.
This interpretive program is sponsored by Taylor Rose Historical Outfitters.
