Twilight Tours at Hagley
Enjoy a rare opportunity to see Eleutherian Mills, the first du Pont family home built in America, dressed for the holidays and illuminated with softly glowing lights.
This year, “home” may have taken on a different, more poignant, meaning, especially around the holidays, when family gathers. It is in this spirit that Hagley celebrates the holiday season with the theme, “Home for the Holidays: A Celebration of Family.”
Enjoy a Twilight Tour of Eleutherian Mills and step into the world of entertaining in the 1920s and 1930s. Take in the festive decorations and learn how the staff prepared delicious food as you discover what would be happening both upstairs and downstairs in the Residence as the family gathered for the holidays.
Tours will be given every fifteen minutes from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Tours depart from the Hagley Library.
During your visit, you may also view the wonderful entries in Hagley's Gingerbread House Contest in the Hagley Barn, and enjoy “Innovations for Celebrations: Inventing the Holidays,” a specially curated holiday-themed collection of patent models, in the Library's Copeland Room.
Advance Tickets Encouraged, link to order tickets coming soon.
Free for Hagley Members, $15 for nonmembers.
