Winsor Castle by Night
Begin your holiday season with a starlight visit to Winsor Castle, the historic fort at Pipe Spring National Monument, on Tuesday December 3, 2013 from 5:00-8:00 pm.
Winsor Castle By Night provides a once a year opportunity for the public to visit the historic home at night, complete with Victorian era decorations and lighted with oil lamps. Visit the fort at your leisure, chat with costumed rangers and volunteers about holidays past, and sing a carol or two around the pump organ. Enjoy fiddle music and conversation with the volunteers in the rooms of the fort.
Stop by the chuckwagon for hot cider and warm up by the fire. At the Visitor Center, try your hand at making an old-fashioned holiday decoration, browse the museum or watch the Pipe Spring film "Encounter on the High Desert."
