Comstock Christmas Light Tours @ The Comstock House
Dec 2 @ 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Many contemporary Christmas traditions originated in the culture of the Victorian Era and we’re highlighting that history this December.

The Comstock House will be decorated and illuminated in Victorian fashion and we’ll be offering tours of the house this holiday season to shed some light on the Christmas customs that the Comstock family and other Victorians enjoyed at the turn of the twentieth century.

Christmas trees, stockings by the fire, and mistletoe…. At the end of the tour, guests can enjoy hot chocolate and Christmas cookies.

Tours will leave at 5:30PM, 7:00PM, and 8:30PM, with a limit of 12 people per tour. Sign up soon, though — these spots should go fast!

Reserve Tickets ($10 General Admission, $5 MNHS/HCSCC Members)
