Back by popular demand.  This tour was part of a 2015 mystery tour and we were delighted and intrigued by the celebration of a Victorian Christmas. A wonderful day trip complete with amazing architecture, Christmas history and traditions, and a wonderful lunch buffet.
 
HIGHLIGHT CITY:  Bloomington, IL
 
FEATURES:  David Davis Mansion - A precursor of the modern homes and comfort systems that we take for granted today and is an impressive reminder of the important role that Illinois played in the nation’s history when Abraham Lincoln was president.  The tour gives human shape and drama to the technological, architectural, cultural, social, and aesthetic history of the Gilded Age. • Christmas at David Davis Mansion - See the gorgeous home decorated in period of Christmas finery.  Take in the architecture, history, postcard scenes of decorated evergreen trees and Christmas wreaths, and poinsettia plants as you walk back in time to the late 1800’s. • Tea Ladies Victorian Christmas Splendor - A beautiful step back in time to a Victorian Christmas in the 1890’s. We take you through a day with the lady of the manor as she prepares for the Victorian Christmas holidays.  Sleigh rides, decorating the lavish Christmas tree, preparing the Christmas feast, and how she attended an elegant Christmas dinner.  We “Show and Tell” about Victorian Scrap ornaments and play beautiful Christmas music. • Beer Nuts - Bloomington, Illinois is the only city in the world beer nuts are made!  A video presentation on the making of beer nuts can be viewed in the gift shop and nuts are available to sample in the company store. • Ozark House Restaurant - Enjoy a lunch buffet of homemade recipes and southern fried chicken.  A locally owned favorite since 1972.
