    Brattonsville opens its doors for our annual Christmas Candlelight Tours, a tradition for over 40 years, on Dec. 3 and 10, 2022.

    With the Bratton family away visiting relatives, the audience will join a costumed tour guide through a guided candlelit tour, set in 1852, to explore how Christmas may have been celebrated among the people who remained on the plantation.

    Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance for timed tour slots.

    • Father Christmas
    • Make-and-take activities: Candle-dipping and making 'scherenschnitte' (German for “scissor cuts”) snowflake ornaments
