Candlelight Christmas TOURS


There's nothing like a Victorian Christmas with it's party games, delightful decorations, and fragrant food and drink. Travel back to that era and learn how these wonderful traditions evolved during your Christmas tour of the historic Jackson Mansion.

The Victorian Christmas is a joyous occasion. First and foremost it is a religious holiday but giving and family were important themes. Most gifts were handmade so they were started many months before. Mufflers, embroidered handkerchiefs, bookmarks, pen wipers, and other useful gifts were lovingly stitched, glued, and colored for family members and friends through the fall and winter months.
Wrappings of colored paper, tissue, and cloth were chosen with ribbon to complement. Enjoy the pictures below from our 2011 tour.


Candlelight Christmas 2011
On Christmas Eve the last of the relatives arrive for the holidays. Not only the immediate family, but aunts,  uncles, cousins, grandparents were in attendance. It was a holiday devoted to one of the most important aspects  of Victorian times, the family.
