Clermont site to kick off Christmas season
The Clermont State Historic Site’s Christmas season begins Dec. 3 and 4 with “A Child’s Christmas at Clermont.”
Families can drop in with children from 10 a.m. to noon for a stocking-foot tour of the decorations and a story with the family’s nursemaid at the foot of the Christmas tree in the oak-paneled library.
Each child will receive candy in their shoes from Santa Claus and a Christmas gift.
Hot cider, cookies and fruit will be served in the kitchen.
Tickets are $4 per person. No reservations are necessary.
For those without children, the general public can tour the mansion from noon to 3 p.m.
Also, reservations are being accepted for the museum’s candlelight evening tours from 3 to 6 p.m. Dec. 11. Call (518) 537-4240 during business hours for tickets or more information.
