Tickets on sale for Candlelight Christmas Tour

November 12, 2002

Advance tickets are now on sale for the Daniel Boone Home and Boonesfield Village’s annual 1800’s Candlelight Christmas Tour. The holiday event, which has become a mainstay among area’s seasonal celebrations, is scheduled for the evenings of Friday and Saturday Dec. 6,7,14 and 15.

The Daniel Boone Home is located on the Boone Campus of Lindenwood University, at 1868 Hwy F, midway between Defiance and New Melle in St. Charles County.

This year, 17 period buildings, including the historic 1810 home in which Daniel Boone lived and died, will be decorated with historically appropriate natural materials, much of which is gathered from the grounds of the Boone Home.

In addition, musicians, carolers, choirs, craftsman and historic interpreters will be entertaining guests through Boonesfield Village, and traditional holiday treats will be served to visitors at various locations. No electric lighting is used in any of the buildings or on the grounds. This year, more than 1700 candles will be lit each night, in addition to light from oil lamps, torches, bonfires and fireplaces.

Special exhibits for this year’s 1800’s Candlelight Christmas Tour include a display of Boone family quilts in the Sappington-Dressel House, and three rooms of the Stake House furnished with objects from the new Price-Loyles Collection.

Advance tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children 4-11. They can be purchased by phone with a major credit card, or in person at the Daniel Boone Home through Dec. 1. For additional information, call the Daniel Boone Home at (636) 798-2005.
