Candlelight Tours & Carriage Rides

December 14, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Visit the decorated, candlelit halls of the Hampton-Preston Mansion and the Robert Mills House and go on a guided tour during our annual Candlelight Tours & Carriage Rides!

Enjoy live music, entertainment, children’s activities and hot chocolate while celebrating the holidays with Historic Columbia. Before or after your house tour, take a carriage ride through the Robert Mills Historic District. Stop by the Gift Shop’s holiday open house throughout the evening for refreshments, holiday tunes and giveaways. Other holiday vendors will be onsite beginning at 4pm to help families with any holiday shopping needs. Be sure to visit this holiday market to find local one-of-a-kind gifts.

Candlelight Tours are $5 for adult members, free for youth members, $15 for adult non-members and $8 for youth non-members. Carriage Rides are an additional $10/person. Candlelight Tour tickets must be purchased in order to purchase Carriage Ride tickets. Purchasing a Carriage Ride ticket gives guests the option of selecting a carriage or wagon. Wagon rides are great for families and larger groups.

There is limited space on the Carriage Rides so grab your tickets now!
