SPARKLING HISTORY

SPARKLING HISTORYCape May’s historic homes sparkle and shine for the holidays during the 40th annual Christmas Candlelight House Tours, sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC). Tour-goers board heated trolleys and visit as many as 15 homes, inns, hotels and churches, beautifully decorated for the holiday season. Along the way, carolers and strolling musicians impart good old-fashioned Christmas cheer, and hospitality centers offer warm beverages and traditional holiday treats. The 40th Annual Christmas Candlelight House Tours are Saturdays, Dec. 7, 14, and 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Admission is $25 for adults and $20 for children (ages 3-12) and includes entry to the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate, Cape May’s only Victorian House Museum at 1048 Washington St., authentically decorated for a Victorian Christmas (shown here), and to “An Old-fashioned Christmas” exhibit in the Carriage House Gallery on the grounds of the Estate, as well as continuous shuttle service on heated trolleys.
