Age of Elegance Tours
“After Christmas supper, the five of us walked across the moon-lit fields to Sully to see their Christmas tree. Our cat Tim accompanied us and sat beside the door until we were ready to go home… the Christmas tree, a big cedar, stood in the hall, bedecked with glowing candles, strings of popcorn and cranberries, and cut-out paper angels. To a six-year old, this was a magnificent sight.”
–Minnie Middleton, about Christmas at Sully in 1885
This December, Sully is hosting its Age of Elegance private group tours. See the 1794 historic house decorated in traditional fashion for the holidays as you and your family group or pod explore with your guide. Learn about how people living in Virginia used to celebrate the winter season during the time the Lees lived at Sully, and about Christmas celebrations at Sully in the late 1800s. At the end of your tour, take home a wrapped treat to enjoy.
Age of Elegance tours begin December 3, 2020 and run through January 3, 2021. Tours are offered at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm Thursdays through Sundays, and each private tour session is reserved for one family group or pod. On Saturdays there will be an additional 5pm tour available; 5pm tours include candlelight! Each tour typically lasts around 45 minutes. Admission is $25 for 1-2 people, $45 for 3-9 people. Guests are asked to arrive ten minutes early to allow time for temperature checks and a short health screening questionnaire.
