Candlelight at the Inn

CAMPTON HILLS-   Candlelight at the Inn returns to Garfield Farm Museum on Sunday, December 4th from 3-7 pm after a two-year absence. Interpreters wearing period clothing will share with guests what life was like for people during the height of the horse and wagon era. There is no charge for the Candlelight event, but donations are most welcome.

Candlelight has always been one of the most popular events at this 1840s farm and tavern museum. It evokes a pace and peace that is so foreign to life today. It requires a conscious effort on the part of the modern-day visitor to linger and savor the experience, to strike up a conversation with others, and enjoy what was once a great luxury: a brightly lit home full of travelers and neighbors, making for a most jovial atmosphere on a winter’s night. Nineteenth-century music by Last Night’s Fun will be played in the ballroom and refreshments will be offered in the inn’s dining room.
