Thanksgiving weekend and Saturdays through December, you are cordially invited to take a candlelight tour of the Shriver House Museum decorated for an 1860's Christmas, while hearing the story of the Shriver family and how the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War changed their lives forever. Christmas tours take place from November 24th through December 17th. Private tours for groups of ten or more are welcome anytime throughout the holiday season; reservations are required.

Take a step back in time to discover how Christmas was celebrated in the mid-1800s. Enter the 19th century home of George, Hettie, Sadie (7), and Mollie (5) Shriver as they prepare for the upcoming Christmas holidays. See the candle-laden Christmas tree in its place of honor on the parlor table as a fire roars in the fireplace of the handsome room decorated with hand-made holiday greenery.
