Christmas on the North Fork would not be complete without the Southport Historical Society’s Candlelight Tour. This year it is scheduled for the day after Thanksgiving, on November 27th from 3-6 PM. If you have never enjoyed the tour, then this is the year to begin. This is noted as one of the most fun and entertaining events of the year for the Historical Society as each year a different group of local residents decorate the various areas of the Museum Complex in true Holiday style.
Each period building will be expertly decorated and arranged for visitors. No two buildings will be decorated the same and many Holiday themed objects from the Society’s collection will appear in displays. Tour guides will be dressed in period costumes and will guide guests along the many buildings of the Southport Historical Society. Of course, the Christmas decorations would not be complete without Santa and his elves and rumor have it that they will be found in the Pine Neck Barn!
As guests stroll along the complex, musicians and chorus singers will be performing Holiday music which is sure to get everyone in the true spirit of the season! The lighting of the Hamlet Christmas Tree is always an exciting part of the tour and it will happen at 5 PM in front of the Ann Currie-Bell House. Finish the evening with a little shopping at the Treasure Exchange or the Museum Gift Shop and you will be on your way to a delightful Holiday Season!
