Manor House Candlelight Tours

December 16, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


christmas applesDuring the month of November, staff and volunteers will be decorating each of the eight principle rooms of the Manor House by theme and color, including natural flora and greenery inspired by the Foys’ Colonial through Victorian family history – with a few contemporary flourishes to echo the family’s four centuries in coastal North Carolina. 

With special care and attention to the adornment of each room, the front parlor will feature a magnificent live tree, the morning room will reflect the American spirit of red, white and blue, and the children’s room is always a favorite among young and old alike.  Who can resist candy canes and stockings hung with care?

Advanced reservations are required. Tours are limited to 15 guests.  Admission price is $15.00 per person, and includes refreshments in the courtyard after the tour. Ticket price also includes admission to the Star of  Wonder, Star of Night festivities on the grounds.

Guided Candlelight Tours begin in the Manor House basement on the hour at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 7 p.m., and 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
