Public Tours of the buildings and grounds at Chestnut Square are offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 11:00 A.M. On the tour, our docents share the history of each of the buildings and describe the artifacts and furnishings in each building.
The tours last approximately one hour. It is helpful if groups of five or more call in advance for reservations so that we can make sure we have the appropriate number of guides. Sometimes we may need to cancel a tour due to conflict with other events or excessive heat or cold, so please be sure to check our calendar to make sure the tour you plan to attend is scheduled. Suggested donations are $7 for adults and $5 for seniors, students, and military.
