NATIONAL PARK — Gloucester County will offer free Candlelight Tours of the historic James and Ann Whitall House at Red Bank Battlefield Park this Friday, Dec. 12 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 13 from 3 to 9 p.m.

This year's theme for the candlelight tours is "A Hessian Christmas." Enjoy hearth cooking by volunteers, tours, learn about the German traditions that have inspired our own holidays, and see gingerbread houses and all natural elements throughout the house that will be on display.

The Candlelight Tour is free of charge and a service of the Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
