Boscobel House and Gardens becomes even more beautiful during the holiday season. Thousands of guests come each year to share the festive decorations and real and faux greenery and foods that evoke early 19th-century feasts, gatherings, and gift-giving traditions. When Boscobel was first built for the Dyckman family between 1804-08, their traditions could have included English, German, Dutch, and uniquely American celebrations. Revisit Boscobel’s Seasonal Splendor on a safely virtual, LIVE 45-min tour with Boscobel Executive Director and Curator Jennifer Carlquist.
