Candlelight Tours

  Each year, during the holiday season, the C.H. Moore Homestead DeWitt County Museum is decorated in full Victorian splendor, illuminated by candles, and filled with music. For many it has become an treasured holiday tradition. 

  These special candlelight holiday tours are open to the public and take place on Friday evenings only; beginning the Friday following Thanksgiving and continuing throughout December. In addition, the Museum Gift Shop, which offers a variety of Christmas items, gift items, candles, books by local authors and more, will also be open during the candlelight tours. 

  Guests may enter the house at the front door. Tours are self-guided, so visitors may come calling anytime between the hours of 5:00pm and 7:30pm and take as much or as little time as desired exploring the historic house, exhibits, and carriage barn. Additional parking is available in the lot directly across the street from the mansion. 

  Enjoy history, warmth and hospitality, beauty and Christmas cheer at the C.H. Moore Homestead DeWitt County Museum!
