SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Davenport House is offering evening tours by candlelight every night until Monday, December 30th.

The historic group are giving families the opportunity to experience how families celebrated Christmas back in the 19th century. Attendees also will have the opportunity to get a personal view of the federal style home with complements of music and refreshments.

"Life was very, very different. The way people celebrated the holidays was very, very different. But I hope that they can sense the past in this fine old house. And also, I think it's wonderful when families can come together and experience the tour together with different people from all over the country. It's one of those communal events that makes a wonderful memory," said Jamie Credle.

Tours cost $9 in advance and $11 at the door. Children get in for cheaper, but the staff at the Davenport House recommend guests to make reservations.
