Plum Orchard Christmas Tour on Cumberland Island
Celebrate Holiday Traditions on the Plum Orchard Christmas tour at Cumberland Island National Seashore!
Join us at 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 2nd, and experience what Christmas on the island looked like.
After arriving on the island, you’ll take a special ferry ride to Plum Orchard mansion and stroll through rooms decked in traditional early 1900's decorations. Learn about holiday customs of the time from volunteers and staff dressed in period costume. In addition to the tour, enjoy seasonal refreshments, play some old-fashioned lawn games, and create a souvenir of your visit. You may even hear a Christmas carol or two!
