Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Boscobel will hold a total of six Twilight Tours. Illumination by candle creates a step back in time. Donning authentic period costume, guides will share stories of customs of the early 1800s, especially those traditions practiced by families like the Dyckmans, who wanted to flaunt their impressive wealth.

Twilight Tours take place at 6 and 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23; 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 24 (5 p.m. on Nov. 24 has sold out at press time) and 5 and 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 25. Tours are limited to 15 people, so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. Admission fees are $18/adult, $16.20/members, $15/senior, $8/child 6-14 and free for children 5 and under. Purchase your tickets online 24/7 at or by phone 845-265-3638 or in person, any day except Tuesday.

Boscobel will offer cider and cookies after each tour.
