BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The Phelps Mansion is inviting the community to explore one of the city’s most historic homes this holiday season.

Starting Thursday, the museum will host a candlelight tour where guests can learn how the Phelps would have celebrated Christmas during the 19th century.

Phelps Mansion House Manager Joe Schuerch said the holiday tours offer a new environment where guests can learn about interesting Christmas traditions of the late 1800s.

“It’s just another fun way to offer people a glimpse into this very old historic house,” said Schuerch. “Rather than just coming in for a regular tour, in the evenings the lights are dimly lit, the Christmas trees are all decorated and it’s a whole different environment.”
