Woodville Plantation: Holidays at the House

November 20, 2011 @ 12:00 pm

Come celebrate the holidays in a different light with candlelight tours of Woodville Plantation. Learn how 18th century holiday customs such as Twelfth Night, Boxing Day and the firing of Christmas guns differ from our modern-day celebrations. Included will be a magnificent display of the full table feast celebrated during Twelfth Night. Candlelight tours are conducted from noon to 8 pm.
