Touring a historic house where the halls are lavishly decked for the holidays is a great way to celebrate the season.
From stunning Christmas trees to historical artifacts festively dressed, every inch of the Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown is a spectacle to see. And it's not just tours the mansion offers. "We have wonderful theatre that is performed in the mansion. So, it’s a completely different way to experience Lyndhurst - not on a tour but sitting and watching a performance," says Executive Director Howard Zar.
This is the final week to check out one of those performances, "Mr. Dickens tells a Christmas Carol." Actor Michael Muldoon, who plays Charles Dickens, says it is a privilege to be able to put on his show inside the mansion. "We believe that it's extraordinary because our production takes places in these surrounding, the sumptuous magnificent mansion."
The tour takes about one hour. Aside from the holiday décor, you'll also get to see some rare items that belonged to Lyndhurst’s former owners. News 12 is told lots of the treasures are usually tucked away in their archives.
