Three renowned and architecturally distinct structures in the Bryn Athyn Historic District, all in exquisite settings, will be illuminated during this memorable event that offers the public free access to explore the sites.
Bryn Athyn Cathedral, Cairnwood Estate, and Glencairn Museum were designated National Historic Landmarks in October 2008. Together, these buildings comprise the Bryn Athyn Historic District and will be featured during “Landmarks in Lights: A Celebration of Faith” from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy the venues’ expansive grounds all to the strains of recorded classical music.
Visitors will tour Glencairn’s first floor and watch a 15-minute orientation video. For $5.00 per person or $10.00 for a group of 3, they also can take an elevator to the top of Glencairn’s 149-foot tower for a rare nighttime view of the Philadelphia skyline and surrounding area.
The Cathedral’s stunning stained glass windows will be lit, and there will be live a cappella and recorded classical music filling the air, with tour guides available to answer questions. The bookstore/gift shop will be open, and the award-winning gardens available for exploration.
Cairnwood Estate’s architectural details will be accented by lighting, and the newly restored Garden House will be open. All 3 floors for the mansion, including access to the tower, will be open for self-guided tours. $5 Admission.
