Family Lantern Tours

Saturday, October 17 & 24
6:00 pm-9:00pm

--- Pre-Paid Tickets required ---

Enjoy a self guided tour with just your Household, in the Village of Talley Cavey
entirely by Lantern light!

* Recommended for adults and children age 7 and older *

You will be treated to Tall tales, superstitions and customs from the past, this year touching on "Plagues, Potions & Practices" relating to death and disease in 18th century Talley Cavey.

Does the topic sound a bit macabre? Our presentation won't be! We promise you will meet colorful figures, hear some tall tales and maybe learn a bit about life in the old days. Oh, and you just might catch a glimpse of the Deacon, our resident, benevolent ghost, wandering the grounds again tonight.

Now, how will things work this year within the Health Guidelines?

  • Tours will be self guided, with each Household moving on their own. We can accommodate 1 to 6 persons per household. You will be walking on the (somewhat uneven) brick paths in our Village.
  • Tickets MUST be pre-purchased on-line (see below)
  • You will select a time-slot for your Household. Within that time-slot we will stagger the departure of each Household to maintain good social distance.
  • There are more stops this year so your Household can visit each place alone.
  • and yes, wear masks please!

Admission (for members and non-members): $7/adult, $5/children under 12
