A Candlelight Tour is a magical excursion.  Imagine walking through an entire historic town at night guided by the glow of old-fashioned lamps.  On this wonderful tour you can  journey through three-hundred years of tradition and discover how America's most festive season came to be.

The town is illuminated by candles, oil lamps and the warmth of a flickering hearth, and enlivened by holiday sweets. You travel from house to house as you visit the people from days of old.  You are welcomed by these humble early Americans and get a taste of life gone by.  Your tour ends with a festive Wassail Bowl Reception in the Courthouse.

This your opportunity to be drawn back into nostalgic days when everyday life and holiday times were more intimate and personal. This is your time to get all warm and fuzzy in the spirit of the holiday season and celebrate the cheer of yesteryear. Each step through this tour brings you closer to the traditions that were held dear by the ordinary people who worked together to build an extraordinary country.

Historic Richmond Town has been presenting Candlelight Tours for decades.  It has become a popular holiday tradition for generations of families. If you are looking for something different or would like to get into the holiday mood or, perhaps, need to impress a loved one with a great find, this is the journey for you!

Please reserve your tickets online today while still available! 

Our special message to hipsters - Dude, come for the holidays. Come home to Richmondtown!

Skip the leftovers and enjoy open-hearth fire-cooked Thanksgiving samplings

Thanksgiving TableThe meal that many American families enjoy on Thanksgiving has deep roots in the earliest American food traditions. Historic Richmond Town’s three historic kitchens will be crackling with hardwood fires and open-hearth cooking on Saturday November 25 and Sunday November 26. Historic Interpreters will serve food samples that feature original old-world recipes that include food items that the colonists learned about from Native American culture, and then infused with the spices used in Europe.
