This tour is wheelchair accessible and is also designed for visitors who have difficulty climbing up and down stairs, or who cannot stand or walk for lengths of time. The Accessibly Designed Evening Tour takes guests back in time every spring and fall, as Living History Docents in 1930s clothing appear along the tour route, adding life once again to the magnificent surroundings seen on tour.
In 2017, the Accessibly Designed Evening Tours will be offered on most Friday and Saturday evenings in October (with the exception of October 14th.) In November, the tour will be offered on the first three Fridays and Saturdays of the month. In December, the Evening Tour will be conducted on the 1st, 2nd, 8th, 10th, 11th and 15th of the month.
