The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society chronicles the history of our region from American Indian occupation through 20th century industry and life.

A Special Invitation from the Lycoming County Historical Society…



Thank you for all of your support! We are no longer able to accept any more reservations for this trip.

Please join us Sunday, December 14, 2014, for an enchanting excursion into the past as we visit the Winterthur Museum in Wilmington, Delaware. The Winterthur mansion houses the outstanding collection of Henry Francis DuPont, displaying American decorative arts in period room settings spanning two centuries, from 1620 through the 1830’s. And, as a special treat for us to enjoy during the Christmas season, the Museum will be festooned with holiday decorations most splendid!

Our delightful day trip disembarks from the Taber Museum at 5:45 am and includes a guided tour of Winterthur beginning at 10 am. From 11 am until 2 pm, we have free time to shop at the Museum Store, enjoy lunch in the cafeteria and tour the gardens on the Winterthur tram (weather permitting).

For two hours beginning at 2 pm, we will be transported to another time and a distant continent. An exhibit of forty costumes from the PBS hit series, “Downton Abbey,” will provide an enlightening peek into the lifestyle of the British gentry, circa 1900.

Departing Delaware at 5 pm, we will stop for dinner at 6:30 pm at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant in Fogelsville, PA. (The cost of dinner is not included in your payment.) We will return to the Taber about 9:30 pm.

The cost of this wonderful tour is $75 per LCHS member and $95 per non-member. As you can imagine, this trip will book very quickly! We urge you to reserve your seats as soon as possible! The registration deadline is November 25. Make checks payable to LCHS, or use a credit card. Your payment will reserve your place.
