Come spend a lovely winter’s eve with us at the Peter Wentz Farmstead’s annual Candlelight Event!  The soft glow of candles will light your way as you explore this historic property.   Celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with this picturesque look at wintertime on a colonial Pennsylvanian farm.   Register for timed tickets in order to tour the first floor of the historic house and learn how people made do on cold December nights before the advent of electricity and central heating.

In addition to the house tour, a variety of other activities will be taking place throughout thr property.  Meet members of the 6th Pennsylvania Regiment to hear about winter life in the Continental army, or stop by our Summer Kitchen to watch an open-hearth cooking demonstration.  Those brave enough to go up to our Belsnickel will find out if they’ve been naughty or nice (and maybe come away with a treat!) 

All are welcome to attend this free event!  However, for those interested in touring the house, you must pre-register for free, timed tickets.

Tickets are available at: https://pwfcandlelight2022.eventbrite.com
