A Victorian Holiday in Hartford CT

Real Estate Agent with William Raveis Real Estate


Have you ever thought about what Christmas was like during the Victorian period (late 1800′s)? Travel back in time and get a glimpse of a Victorian Christmas on Sunday, December 12 between 5pm and 8pm on Farmington Avenue in Hartford's West End. The Harriet Beecher Stowe and Mark Twain homes will be authentically decorated and the halls will echo the sounds of the season. Take a carriage ride around Nooks Farm. Enjoy hot cocoa, sweets, carolers, and music as you experience an 1880′s Christmas celebration in two of Hartford's most famous historic homes. Admission is $20 for Adults an $10 for children.

Marie, this is something that would be great to do on Sunday.  Hopefully the weather warms up a little so that people don't have to bundle up as much during the carriage rides :)
