Celebrate Christmas Past at Homewood House
Homewood House will shimmer in fine Federal
holiday style. To celebrate the holidays, curators of the fully
restored historic mansion located on the campus of the Johns
Hopkins University will conjure up the Christmas past of this
once enormously fashionable Early American Baltimore home.
The entire house will be decorated with lavish supper
tables, garlands of boxwood, juniper and nandina, wreaths and
mistletoe kissing balls -- all giving the entire house the
appearance of being poised to entertain guests upon their return
from holiday fox hunts, or for a festive holiday dinner party.
Homewood House is receiving from Tuesday, Dec. 3, through
Monday, Dec. 23. Tours will occur from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday
through Saturday and Sunday from noon to 3 p.m.
Homewood's popular evening candlelight tour will be held
Thursday, Dec. 5 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Period music will be
performed throughout the evening.
