John Jay Homestead State Historic Site is excited to be offering evening holiday tours for the first time in two decades.  These limited candle light tours will take you through John Jay’s 1820s retirement home to discover what the winter holiday season would have been like for Jay and his family.  Period decorations, historic foods and other sensory experiences help celebrate the season.  In the museum gallery is a specially curated exhibition featuring holiday themed artifacts used by multiple generations of the Jay family.  After the tour enjoy refreshments in our 1930s ballroom which features a 10 foot Christmas tree and holiday music.  Exclusive holiday items will also be available in our museum shop.

Tours are offered on Tuesday, December 20th; Wednesday, December, 21st; and Thursday, December 22nd at 5:00pm, 5:30pm, 6:00pm, 6:30pm, and 7:00pm.
