Christmas at Historic Houses

A perfect last-minute holiday gift for the antiques and history buff in your life, Christmas at Historic Houses by Patricia Hart McMillan and Katharine Kaye McMillan is a spirited illustrated guide to 30 noteworthy historic houses across the United States and in England dressed in their holiday best. Ranging from two castles, one palace, mansions to cottages to one slave cabin, this book covers the season from every point of view.

Significant historical estates such as George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and Rhode Island’s Hearthside mansion (known as the “The House that Love Built”) get into the spirit of the season and prepare for visiting guests with illuminated gardens and bedecked interiors, all beautifully documented here.
