December Holiday Tours at Grey Towers
Grey Towers National Historic Site, Milford, PA, will offer guided holiday tours of all three floors of the beautifully decorated mansion from Monday, Dec. 10 through Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012, at 1 pm and 3 pm.
The 1886 mansion, formerly the home of Gov. Gifford Pinchot, founder and first chief of the US Forest Service, will once again be decorated by members of the Milford Garden Club. Each floor is decorated with a different theme or era. Visitors usually can tour only the first floor of the mansion, but all three floors are open during this two-week period.
In addition to the guided tours, visitors can enjoy a Holiday Art Exhibit and Sale, plein air paintings by artists of Come Paint With Me and photographs by members of the Highlands Photography Guild, all creatively depicting Grey Towers and the landscape. The holiday art show is co-sponsored by the Grey Towers Heritage Association.
The Grey Towers Interpretive Gift Shop is open from December 10-22 offering a 20% discount. The shop includes unique holiday gift items provided by Eastern National Forests Interpretive Association and the Grey Towers Heritage Association.
