Schuyler House Dining Room bathed in Candle Light
Experience the ambience of candlelight bathed rooms as you immerse yourself in the Schuyler House annual Candlelight Tour on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Walk the floors and hear the stories of the Schuyler family and their many visitors including George Washington and Alexander Hamilton.
Old Saratoga Historical Association hosts the annual Candlelight Tour of General Philip Schuyler’s 1777 country house. Their members join park staff and volunteers to guide visitors on short tours throughout the evening. Light refreshments will be served.
“This annual evening event is a unique opportunity for visitors to see the interior of the Schuyler House illuminated by candles” says park curator, Christine Valosin. “Visitors get to see rooms as they might have looked when the Schuyler family and their guests enjoyed evening entertainments in the late 1780s or early 1790s.”
The house is located just south of Schuylerville on Route 4. Final tours will start at 8:00 p.m. As the autumn evenings can be chilly or wet, please dress for the weather. It is also recommended that visitors bring a flashlight for the walk back to their cars.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this or other events, please call the Visitor Center at 518-670-2985 or check our website at www.nps.gov/sara or on Facebook and Twitter: @SaratogaNHP
