Holiday Tours of Homewood House Museum

Homewood House Museum will come alive with holiday spirit during two events — its Candlelight Tour from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 8, and a holiday open house from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 14. The museum is located St. on the Homewood campus of The Johns Hopkins University at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

On Dec. 8, candles will sparkle while music permeates the air as guests tour the former home of Charles Carroll Jr. Built in 1801, Homewood House will be decorated for the holidays by the Homeland Garden Club with garlands of greens and boxwood in the windows. Rooms will be set for entertaining and the reception hall will fill with the sounds of early American music performed on harpsichord, Baroque guitar, and English flute by David Hildebrand. Holiday refreshments will be served in the wine cellar. The Homewood Museum Shop will also be open, featuring a selection of unique gifts. Digital photos of past events are available to the media upon request to amycowles@jhu.edu.

On Dec. 14, Homewood House will be decorated for the season to participate in The Greater Baltimore History Alliance Holiday Open House, a tour of Baltimore's top 10 historic sites. The music of David Hildebrand will once again fill the halls, holiday decorations will enliven the period rooms, and refreshments will be available in the wine cellar.

Admission to the Candlelight Tour on Dec. 8 is free for Homewood House members and Johns Hopkins affiliates; $6 for adults; $5 for seniors; $3 for students. Admission to the holiday open house on Dec. 14 is $1. For information on either event, call 410-516-5589 or visit www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
