Join our group of historic sites, museums, and privately-owned homes as we come together to present a splendid grand tour. For this one-day event, each venue will be decorated with a festive flair with many offering costumed skits, music,  and other seasonal activities. Choose a themed tour or customize your own. Explore our site to discover your newest, spirited holiday tradition.


Guests are invited to create their own tour or utilize the themed tours provided on the Historic Saint Louis webpage. Themed tours cover a variety of historic topics, geographical areas, and story connections. Historic resources celebrated on this special day embrace a wide span of traditions, celebrate early American history, highlight Victorian living, and more. Create a new holiday tradition of your own as you enjoy a new tour each year. No matter the path chosen, guests of all ages are sure to enjoy the holiday spirit of yesteryear.
