This season, explore a bit of St. Louis that may be overlooked by going on the Historic Holiday Candlelight Tour
. The six landmarks that are included in the holiday festivities are the Campbell House Museum (1508 Locust Street), the historic Samuel Cupples House (3673 West Pine Mall), the Chatillon-DeMenil Mansion (3352 DeMenil Place), the Eugene Field House & St. Louis Toy Museum (pictured; 634 South Broadway), the Scott Joplin House State Historic Site (2658A Delmar Boulevard) and the Old Courthouse (11 North Fourth Street). A buffet dinner will be served at Café DeMenil (call 314-771-5828 for reservations) from 4 to 7 p.m. for the price of $9.95, which is in addition to the cost of the tour ($20 in advance, $25 the day of the tour and $5 for children younger than thirteen years old). To obtain a ticket, call the Eugene Field House at 314-421-4689, and visit www.campbellhousemuseum.org
for more information. Shuttle buses take tourgoers to the sites from 3 to 8 p.m., but participants can opt for a self-guided tour if they wish.
