Experience the 18th century in a whole new light.


This year, enjoy a brand new take on our annual Night in Washington’s Day Program.  Explore the illuminated grounds, 1775 mansion, and outbuildings of Historic Kenmore to see how surprisingly active nights were in the 18th century.


Experience the dining, dancing, and drinking of the gentry. Hear the words of the enslaved people who worked day and night on the property.  Hands on activities create an up close look at lighting techniques from long ago.  Learn how nighttime transformed from a fearful darkness to an illuminated extension of liveliness in history!
