Glorious glow


One of the best times to see the Dana-Thomas State Historic Site is during the holidays and especially at the popular Luminaria Evening, set for Sunday, Dec. 18, from 4-8 p.m. The recently remodeled home will glow with approximately 1,000 luminaria lining the sidewalks and ledges of the 12,600-square-foot structure. Tours during the Luminaria Evening are silent except for live music performed in the house. The home will remain decorated for the holidays until Dec. 31, with tours Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tour donations are suggested at $5 for adults and $3 per child. The site will be closed Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency sponsors holiday events at the home.
