The Candlelight Tours
Each year on the first Sunday of December, the Yonkers Historical Society holds its Candlelight Tour at Sherwood House to celebrate the holiday season. Admission is free and there is a Holiday Boutique in the Weed Cottage, where merchandise and refreshments are available. Sometimes, volunteers wear historic costumes and Christmas carols are sung. In the past, there have been book signings, sculptor exhibits, special guests, and other great experiences. Each year is different and fun for the whole family. Visitors are welcome to tour the second oldest house in Yonkers with friendly and knowledgeable volunteers as your guides.
