Historic site offers candlelight tours
Clermont State Historic Site, 1 Clermont Ave., off state Route 9G, will host a Candlelight Evening from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, allowing visitors to enjoy guided tours of the mansion decorated for the holidays.
Each room on the tour will feature a cast of meticulously costumed “actors” frozen into living pictures of historic holiday celebrations. Actors will create scenes featuring the seven generations of Livingstons who lived in the mansion engaging in various festivities, including Christmas, Twelfth Night and New Year’s celebrations. Each tour ends with wassail and traditional holiday treats served in the historic kitchen.
Admission is $12 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Reservations are required. For tickets, call (518) 537-4240.
