Gov. Gifford Pinchot’s Grey Towers National Historic Site in Milford, Pike County will offer guided holiday tours of all three floors of the decorated mansion from December 3 through 16 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m..

The 1886 mansion, formerly the home of Pennsylvania Gov. Gifford Pinchot, founder and first chief of the US Forest Service, will once again be decorated by members of the Milford Garden Club.

These special holiday tours bring visitors to all three floors of the mansion; the upper floors usually are not open to the public for tours.

On December 15, at 11:00 a.m., there will be a free musical performance of holiday favorites by students of the Delaware Valley School District. Additional musical programs are being added through the month.

In addition to the guided Holiday Tours, visitors can enjoy a Holiday Photography Exhibit featuring photographs taken by members of the Pike Imaging Council, all creatively depicting Grey Towers, the landscape, and forests or trees.

The Grey Towers Interpretive Gift Shop is open from December 3-16 offering a 20 percent discount on most items. The shop includes unique holiday gift items provided by Eastern National Forests Interpretive Association and the Grey Towers Heritage Association.

Guided tour fees: $8 adults; $7 seniors; $5 youth; under 12 free. Reservations are required for groups of 10 or more and are offered before Noon each day that the mansion is open for public tours.
