It's Time For Christmas Tours at Rocky Mount
Two Different Experiences
Our Candlelight tours offer a unique Christmas experience with period-attired interpreters that many of our guests have come to love over the years. During the Candlelight tour, you’ll travel back to Christmas Eve 1791 when the Cobb family home is celebrating with handmade decorations of greenery, lit by candles, and full of cheer. You will meet and rejoice with the Cobb family, the Governor, and many of their friends and neighbors as you tour the historic homestead.
A Colonial Christmas
This year we are expanding our tour offerings and including a new daytime tour. This tour will feature a tour guide who will take you through the historic homestead during the day explaining the history of Christmas traditions that took place in East Tennessee. These tours are an interactive daytime experience designed to make learning about the Tennessee Frontiersmen and women fun and memorable. Come learn about the Christmas traditions of our Tennessean settlers led by one of our tour guides as you walk on the Capitol grounds.
