You are cordially invited to kick off the holiday season with an evening of candlelight and music at the 120-year-old mansion. Cairnwood, swathed in holiday lighting and resplendent with luscious greens and festive décor, will host “Cairnwood by Candlelight,” at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8th.

The mansion will be glowing with light and sparkle with holiday décor. Visitors will have an opportunity to see all three floors of the mansion decorated for the season by professional florists, the servant’s quarters, and the tower. The evening will feature self-guided tours, a display of Victorian gowns and an array of yuletide desserts.

Each year a dazzling two-story Christmas tree, with over 3000 lights, stands where one once stood at the turn of the century. Our Christmas exhibit Variations in Vintage Velvet: Pile, Pattern, and Plush includes elegant fashions circa 1880s -1960s worn by the ladies of the house. Don’t miss this chance to view the artistry of these breath-taking fashions.

Admission is $25; Limited tickets available.  First come first serve; for additional information, call Cairnwood at 215-947-2004, or visit
