The Marshall Historical Society’s 41st Candlelight Walk will be on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 10-11. The event, featuring guided tours to five historic homes decorated for Christmas, had been canceled the last two years due to Covid.
The walks will start promptly at 4:30 and 6:45 p.m. on both days. Each begins with a reception at the First Presbyterian Church, 200 W. Mansion St. Participants should arrive at least 30 minutes before their scheduled tour times to enjoy the reception and be ready to depart at the scheduled times.
The cost is $25, and reservations can be made by calling (269) 781-8544 or by purchasing online. Purchasers should indicate their preferred date and time. Only 500 total tickets will be sold. Purchases are not refundable.
The tour organizers emphasize that this is a walking tour and that participants should wear comfortable boots or shoes and be prepared for winter weather. Each tour group will have approximately 25 persons and make an escorted circuit of the five Candlelight Walk homes.
