    Full Moon Tour: Living in the Dark

    What was it like to live in the dark with only the Moon and a few candles to light your way? Living in the Dark will explore life before the electric light. Enjoy this special evening tour of the beautiful Governor Gore mansion. Led by a guide in period clothing, these tours focus on life in the early 19th century. Why is it called a Full Moon Tour? These tours take place each month on an evening near the full moon. The full moon was very important to early settlers as well as Native Americas. By providing additional light at night, the full moon allowed them to work late into evening and made night-time travel safer. Though varied in theme, each Full Moon Tour includes the major rooms of the mansion and offers a glimpse into the fascinating world of the Gores.
