Clayton Tour&mdash;<em>A Gilded Age Christmas: Holiday Traditions</em> (tour times vary)

A Gilded Age Christmas: Holiday Traditions

Visitors to Clayton this holiday season will find the warmth and cheer of a traditional Gilded Age Christmas. This year’s tour traces the evolution of the most popular Christmas pastimes, most of which developed over the course of the nineteenth century. Period photographs, copies of holiday shopping lists in Adelaide Frick’s handwriting, and receipts for toys purchased for the Frick children will enrich the tour with authentic information about holidays in the Gilded Age. 

Clayton is an example of both the home of a wealthy Pittsburgh family and of late Victorian architecture and interior design. Visitors on the tour have the unique experience of learning about the Frick family, local history, and Victorian social customs in the family’s home, where more than 90% of the furniture and artifacts on display are original.

Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.

The Frick is closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
