Christmas at Blithewold: Celebrating the Arts

Blithewold’s founding family were keenly interested in the arts; objects, environments, and experiences that were shared with family and friends, such as painting, sculpture, music, theater, literature, etc. This Christmas we explore the wide variety of artistic and cultural interests of the Van Wickle McKee family. Our volunteer decorators work closely with our curatorial staff to find interesting items and family stories to share with our visitors that help bring the Van Wickles artistic interests to life.
