Stepping into a neoclassical mansion all decked out for the season can put anyone in a holiday mood. Don’t miss the Whitehall House & Gardens Candlelight Tour.
The second official Candlelight Tour at Whitehall is actually a longheld tradition for the historic landmark. Hume Logan, the last resident of the house who bequeathed it to the Historic Homes Foundation in 1992, so enjoyed the pageantry of the season that he used to open his doors to the public to enjoy a candlelit viewing of his holiday décor.
Now, guests at the revived holiday event can mingle in the beautifully bedecked mansion and enjoy delicious refreshments, live music and unlimited inspiration for their own homes and gatherings. The array of local vendors who transform the gracious estate into a virtual holiday wonderland include Hazefield Farms, In Bloom Again, Magnolia Florist, Merci Bouquet, J. Elizabeth Designs, The Chocolate Fountain, Elite Events by Paula Coleman, Dillards and The Sacred Heart School of Music. This magical experience for family and friends will linger with you long after you walk past the sweeping front porch strung with twinkling lights and gorgeous garlands.
