Candlelight Christmas Tours
December 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - December 11, 2021 @ 8:30 pm$5 – $17
“Deck the halls with boughs of holly…., Tis the season to be jolly….”
The Cobb home at Rocky Mount has witnessed hundreds of years of Christmas celebrations dating from the colonial era to today. Every year to celebrate Christmas, the historic homestead is decorated with traditional 1700’s holiday décor and tours are offered to the public. During the tour you’ll travel back to Christmas Eve of 1791 when the Cobb family home is celebrating with decorations made of fresh greenery, lit by candles, and full of cheer. You will meet and rejoice with the Cobb family, the governor, and many of their friends and neighbors as you tour the historic homestead.
Our candlelight Christmas tours are always popular by all who visit during this time of year. Experience the warm hospitality of the Cobb family and their honored guests, Governor Blount and his wife as the evening sets in and the old rooms are filled with the flickering glow of candlelight. Our evening tours will conclude with an indoor reception including warm cocoa, tasty Christmas treats, vendors for those last-minute gifts, crafts for kids, and… SANTA!!
Candlelight Christmas tours will be held December 3rd, 4th, 10th, and 11th. Tours start every 15 minutes, beginning at 5pm, the last one being at 8:30pm.
