WHERE: Blithewold Mansion

Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., December 5, 12, 19, & 26

Blithewold is now offering weekly guided tours of the beautifully decorated Mansion during the Christmas at Blithewold season. Each year, the Mansion features a new theme. Then the rooms are individually designed and decorated by teams of talented volunteers, each room illustrating some variation of the chosen theme. Join our experienced tour guides to explore not only the history of the house and the family but how family stories interweave with the decorations and ornaments and ribbons and greenery. As a feature of the tours, participants will be able to learn more about some of the items from our special collections, on display only during the holiday season. Registration in advance is preferred. Walk-ins are taken on a first come, first served basis since our tours must be limited to smaller groups.

Departures: Tours depart from the front hall of the Mansion promptly at the time listed.
Accessibility: Blithewold has limited access for wheelchairs. Call for information.

He showed us, plant by plant, exactly what to look for to help predict how different plants will behave in our gardens. He reminded us that plant growth falls along […]
  • Christmas at Blithewold “You Are Invited” (Oct 13, '14)
    Although Blithewold is closing to the public this week, it is anything but quiet around the Mansion. We are now preparing to get the Mansion dressed up for Christmas! It is a bit hard to imagine a snowy winter in the midst of this crisp fall weather, but our decorating volunteers have been prepping and […]
  • Moving into fall (Oct 10, '14)
    It was chilly this morning. No frost yet (perish the thought — our average first frost date falls in early November) but night temperatures in the forties are definitely giving us a taste of what’s to come along with a chance to acclimatize, and a good reason to pull sweaters out of summer storage. And after […]
