Holiday Candlelight Tours 2011 - "Spies & Other Guests"
December 10 & 11
First Tour begins at 6pm; tours run every 10 minutes
This year's Holiday Candlelight Tours at Sotterley Plantation will feature a time-traveling experience during the Civil War Era to Christmas 1864. On December 10th and 11th from 6 pm - 10 pm, this historical dramatization unfolds within the 1703 Plantation House, with stellar performances by The Sotterley Players.
The Civil War rages on throughout the Southeast, but the holiday spirit is alive and well at Sotterley. Upon entering the historic Plantation House, tour guests will have the opportunity to witness the annual Holiday celebration of Dr. Walter Hanson Briscoe and Mrs. Emaline Briscoe. Along with their families and closest friends, this year's guest list also includes "Spies & Other Guests"! The mood is one of joyous merriment as enchanting stories are shared.
Live performances by local premiere high school choral groups and complimentary cookies and punch will be available in the historic Barn, prior to reserved tour time.
