NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Guests will have an opportunity to step back in time for a traditional Victorian Christmas with yuletide tours 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16 at the Grassmere Historic Home on the Nashville Zoo property.
The home will be decorated for the holidays with greenery, ribbon and vintage decorations that belonged to Margaret and Elise Croft, former residents of the Grassmere property whose family owned the land and home for five generations. The tour not only highlights these items but also explains some Christmas traditions that started during that time period still honored today.
Tours will run on the half hour and are included with zoo admission. To take the tour, guests are asked to meet on the front porch of the historic home where their guide will meet them.
Music will be provided by Ted Guillaum, an organ grinder, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 1 and caroling by the American Caroling Company will take place 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 8.
