Woodrow Wilson House and Heurich House
Wednesday, November 9, 2016
9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

President and Mrs. Wilson moved from the White House to this S street home in Washington, D.C. on the last day of his presidency, March 4, 1921. President Wilson is the only president to have made Washington his permanent home following his term in office. We will have a guided tour of the house, which includes many remarkable features, including a marble entryway and grand staircase, Palladian window, book-lined study, dumb waiter and butler’s pantry, and solarium overlooking the formal garden. The home has been maintained much as it was in 1924, including furniture, art, photographs, state gifts, and the personal effects of President and Mrs. Wilson. After lunch, our next stop will be a tour of the Heurich House Museum.
Containing most of its original furnishings and decorations, the Heurich House Museum’s rooms are snapshots of the late-Victorian era. They reflect the life of Christian Heurich, a self-made businessman who immigrated from Germany to America with $200. As owner of the Chr. Heurich Brewing Company, he became the District’s second largest landowner and largest non-governmental employer. Lunch is on your own in one of the many restaurants in Dupont Circle.

Join us for a trip to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for a Magic Lantern Show and Holiday Comedy Dinner Show.
Travel back more than 100 years to a time before movies, when the spellbinding drama and humor of the Showman and the spectacular projected images from his "magic lantern” dazzled audiences. Step back in time and become part of a Victorian family’s traditional Christmas Eve celebration. The stunning brass triple-lantern, glorious hand-painted illustrations, a giant screen, the Showman’s legendary storytelling skills, rousing music and sing-a-longs,and dazzling 19th century special effects all combine to create this unique Victorian-age entertainment experience. Classic Christmas stories and poems and much more will fill you with the Christmas spirit. Next we will stop at Rainbow’s Comedy Playhouse for “Green Holly & Gray Potatoes”: It’s Christmas and the family has gathered to tell mom and dad that it’s time to move into a retirement community. Mom and dad have other plans, though! It’s a side-splitting comedy you won’t want to miss. Lunch is included in the ticket price.
