The first Saturday of each December the Farmstead holds one of its most popular events, the Candlelight Open House. Evening tours allow visitors to experience the hospitality of the Wentz home decorated in the fashion of 18th century entertaining. Volunteers in period costume fill the house with music, aroma of hearth cooking, and good cheer.
