Six homes in the Old Field, Setauket and Stony Brook areas were part of this year's annual Three Village Candlelight House Tour held Friday evening and Saturday.

Tours of six private homes; two in Setauket, two in Old Field and two in Stony Brook, as well as the Stony Brook Community Church were part of this year’s celebration. Homes ranged from mid-nineteenth century through the early twentieth century and were be decorated for the holiday season.

Volunteer docents at each of the homes explained the unique character and history behind the  featured residences. All were beautifully draped in seasonal decor.

Thank you to everyone that helped to make this event the huge success it has become for the past 35 years. To the homeowners who gift us their homes for over a week and allow our six amazing decorators to "invade" their homes and their lives for sometimes 12 hours a day. The House Chairs and their House Chair volunteers, who staff and supervise these homes for the weeks prior and during the two days of the tour . A thank you to the local restaurants who provide food for Friday night. It is difficult for most to understand the amount of volunteer hours that go into this annual production, from the creation of the always beautiful ticket, to the historical research (Barbara Russell) for each of the homes. Did you know that our Ticket volunteers Barbara and Karin Lynch have been organizing our ticket sales for as many years as I can remember? A thank you to our office staff and to Steve Hintz who's new leadership as President of the Three Village Historical Society inspired and energized the spirit of this years 35th Candlelight House Tour.
