Candlelight at Bush-Holley House this Sunday

On Sunday, Dec. 16, from 4:30 to 7 p.m., the Greenwich Historical Society will open its doors for a once-a-year “candlelight” tour of Bush-Holley House decked out in its holiday best.

The family-friendly tours last roughly 45 minutes and interpret Christmas traditions as they were celebrated by the Bush and Holley families in the Colonial and art colony eras.

Music, hot chocolate, holiday treats, a visit from Santa Claus (5 to 7 p.m.) and craft projects for kids will also be offered in the Vanderbilt Education Center.

Tours are first-come, first-served and leave every 15 minutes until 6:30 p.m. Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the exhibitions in the new museum building.

Admission is free, and no reservations are necessary. (Entrance to the event is through the new museum lobby.)

The Greenwich Historical Society Bush-Holley House is located at 39 Strickland Rd. For information, visit or call 203-869-6899, ext. 10.
