Wednesday, November 12, 2014Experience the ways in which Mr. Jefferson and his grandchildren, who often accompanied him on his visits to Poplar Forest, may have spent their evenings by participating in a rare candlelit tour of the plantation house. As you walk through the house, you’ll be entertained by anecdotes gathered from Jefferson's letters and diaries. Highlights of the rooms include the East Bedchamber—where his grandchildren slept and from which they walked out onto the terrace for evening strolls with the owls and bats—and the Parlor, with period furnishings, where Jefferson would have kept his library. Visit his kitchen to see an interpretive, period-style cooking demonstration, or do some early holiday shopping in the Museum Shop, which will be open until 7:00 p.m. for your convenience. Tour beings at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $20 per person. Reservations are required. Please call the Museum Shop at 434.534.8120 to reserve a place.
