Event Description:

Candle Light Tours at Hammond Castle

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thursday Night Candlelight Tours
John Hays Hammond, Jr. loved the evening.  Alexander Graham Bell had suggested to Hammond that he work at night and sleep during the day, which Hammond adopted.  Domestic staff, frequent overnight guests, and even Hammond’s wife were daytime people and frequently commented that they might go long periods where they rarely saw him.

With this in mind, “candlelight tours” are offered Thursday nights during the months of July and August. Guides will show you the rooms the Hammond frequented and tell stories about how Irene Fenton Hammond and her husband enjoyed their many years living in the castle.  Guided tours are the only way to see the castle on Thursday evenings at no additional charge other than basic admission, and are offered at 6:00, 7:00 and 8:00 P.M. Thursday August 15th there will be no candle light tours. Come and immerse yourself in that lost era of quiet luxury and candlelight.
