On Friday, December 15th, the Forbes House Museum will be joining with the Eustis Estate and the Wakefield Estate to host an exclusive trolley tour and progressive tasting event. Each site will be decorated for the holidays and will feature one course paired with a signature beverage, drawing inspiration from the Christmas traditions of New England throughout its history. The tour begins at the Forbes House with appetizers and a discussion of the history of Christmas in America. The night continues with a cozy stop by the fireside at the Wakefield Estate for a savory dish, then on to the Eustis Estate for a nightcap and dessert. A trolley will take you between each site and return you to the Forbes House at the end of the tour. Tickets for the three-site trolley tour are $100 per person; $90 for members of one of the sites. Choose between two start times: 6:00 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. with each tour lasting approximately 3 hours.
Limited tickets available and advance purchase is required. Tickets can be purchased at http://shop.historicnewengland.org/EUS-MERRY-MTX-600-10882/ or by calling 857-317-2511.
In case of a snow storm, the tour will be held the following evening, Saturday, December 16th.
