Join us as we travel back in time to the turn of the century, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city...which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street.

We will begin the night with guided tours through the garden and beautifully preserved mansion. At 9pm, we open the doors to a secret candlelit ballroom and invite you to an immersive and historically accurate Victorian Christmas celebration, complete with a fully trimmed tree, hundreds of candles, and a glorious vintage Santa (David Slone).

Entertainment and activities:
- A professional portrait photographer will capture your Santa moment: 7-9pm as a standalone session (no costume required) and then as part of the event 9-11pm
- Throughout the night, Lacy Rose and her Starling Quartet will be performing original songs inspired by turn of the century themes and music, as well as compositions that would have been performed in Salons in the Nineteenth Century
- At 8:45pm and 9:45pm, Lacy will also lead us into Victorian carols
- A full array of traditional Christmas treats, from cookies to plum pudding
- Wassail: the aromatic mulled cider that's been a Yuletide tradition since the Middle Ages
- Victorian parlor and card games played with authentic decks from mid-1800s through early 1900s
- DIY amusements from turn-of-century books
- Take your own photos with our Victorian Santa after the portrait session ends

Dress code:
1800s through 1919 winter, salon, ballroom, formal or military--or as close as you can get with modern formal. Tartans, velvets and furs. Men: tuxes or tails. Ladies: corsets and long gowns.

About our venue:
Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family.
