The annual holiday Lantern Tours return to Hale Farm & Village December 1 through December 23, 2012. This lantern-lit journey takes guests on a holiday history tour of
Northeast Ohio during the Civil War.
A lively blend of history and theatre, Lantern Tour vignettes are presented in the village houses based on research of newspaper accounts, advertisements, diaries, and classic holiday literature from theera. “Lantern Tours have become a tradition for northeast Ohio families,” says Kelly Falcone, Vice President of Hale Farm & Village. "If you haven’t visited Hale Farm & Village during the holidays, we invite you to join us this year. We are
always delighted when our guests leave with a historical view of the Christmas traditions."
Visitors are invited to the Jonathan Hale House for a Victorian-era holiday treat after the tours. The Museum Store, located in the Gatehouse Visitor Center is open throughout the tours and features unique holiday gifts including toys and games, lanterns, books, photographs, and the ever popular Hale-made early American products
such as pottery, glass, ironware, textiles, baskets, brooms and candles.
