You are cordially invited to start a new holiday tradition this year with an evening of candlelight and music at the 119-year-old mansion. Cairnwood, swathed in holiday lighting and resplendent with luscious greens and festive décor, will host “Cairnwood by Candlelight,” at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 11.
Visitors will have an opportunity to see all three floors of the mansion, the servant’s quarters, and the tower. Taking center stage in the mansion’s Great Hall is a two-story Christmas tree adorned with more than 3,000 lights and 300 pieces of sugared fruit.
The evening will feature self-guided tours, a special piano performance of “Seasonal Improvisations” by Kenneth Coy, a display of Victorian gowns and an array of yuletide desserts. The mansion will be glowing with light and sparking with holiday décor.
Once per year Cairnwood will bring the Victorian gowns, which were once worn by Gertrude Pitcairn, when her husband, industrialist John Pitcairn, and their family called Cairnwood home, out of our archives. Don’t miss this chance to view the artistry of these breath-taking fashions.
Admission is $20; Limited tickets available. First come first serve; For additional information, call Cairnwood at 215-947-2004, or visit www.cairnwood.org.
