Join us for a guided tour through Hearthstone followed by a chance to explore our educational exhibits.  All individual, family, and small group tours (for up to ten individuals) are guided by trained docents who relate the story of our house and its unique place in history, its architecture and decor, and of the families who built Hearthstone and who lived here for over 100 years.  These stories vividly illustrate Hearthstone's place in the world as the first residence to be electrified using a central hydroelectric power station, Victorian life, the Gilded Age, and the rise and fall of family fortunes.

Each of our tours includes our special exhibits and educational exhibits dedicated to Edison, his inventive legacy, electricity, and the history of hydroelectricity at Hearthstone.

Tours begin on the hour and last an hour or more depending on the questions asked of the docents.  Please arrive a few minutes early to purchase tickets (cash, credit or debit card).  Tickets may be purchased in advance by clicking the button below.

Please note:  Because of the historic nature of Hearthstone, stairs are the only means of access to the second floor.  The first floor and lower level are wheel chair accessible via an electric lift.

7 pm - 9 pm

Experience Hearthstone in a whole new way.  Join us for an evening tour of Hearthstone by the light of Edison bulbs in our original electroliers and experience the Rogers family and their servants preparing for a big dinner party.

Our docents in period dress will serve as re-enactors as you move from room to room to hear the Rogers family tell their thoughts on the night's festivities.  Docents as cooks, maids, and other servants tell their stories as well - as Hearthstone was home to more than one family in more than one way.  Evening tours recreate a fascinating environment and the feel of the first nights to be electrically lit in the house - some of the first nights to be lit by electricity anywhere in the world.

Our evening tours also feature piano performances of 19th century music performed on one of the very few playable square grand pianos still in existence in the United States.  Step into a time when the piano was the focus of a home's entertainment, when gathering around while a family member played was the focus of family life.  The music adds to the magic of the evening.

Light refreshments will be served.
