For two nights only! Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park takes on a more historic look when hundreds of candles light the way from the Island Belle sternwheeler landing to the Mansion, and other activities on the park. Sternwheeler rides will transport you back to the year 1805 where the Blennerhassetts are hosting a party on the island. On this autumn evening, electricity is banished when the mansion and the island are transformed the flame-lit world of the 18th-century. Reservations are required for this event.
The Mansion by Candlelight ticket includes the round-trip sternwheeler ride, mansion visit, the horse-drawn wagon ride and the servants’ party.
The Harvest Supper is separate.
