Night Tour Details

Nightlife and Gas Technology in an Antebellum Victorian Home

The Lower Cape Fear Historical Society, Inc. is proud to offer our newest tour program, highlighting the impact of gas technology on the nightlife of people who lived and worked in the home until 1886, when the house was first electrified.

  • Tours start at 8:00pm on the first and third Saturday of the month and last until 9:30pm.
  • The tour is typically limited to 10 guests and often booked well in advance, so reservations are recommended.
  • Due to the very low lighting, guests are asked to move with care throughout the house.
  • Regular lighting levels will be restored at the end of the tour, allowing time for photos.


  • $20 per person
