"An Old-Fashioned Christmas Dance"
November 30-December 2, 2018
at the 1883 John & Lottie Moore Home
In creating this year’s theme for the annual Candlelight Tours of the Moore Home, the Docent committee stumbled upon a great story from the Fort Bend Museum archives about Miss Ivy and Mr. Raymond Moore hosting an “Old Fashioned Country Dance” at their family’s home.
This event began with the Moore children planning and inviting their friends informally, but eventually turned into a party for the whole town as their parents became involved and invited their adult friends, as well,
Dancing throughout the night, the guests were served dinner at midnight — and then breakfast before they left in the morning.
In honor of this historic event, the Fort Bend Museum Docents invite you to join the Moore family and their guests to step into the past and relive a fun-filled night in the Moore Home.
Enjoy a special Candlelight Home Tour, heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and a silent auction. Black tie optional.
The Candlelight Ball & Tours are sponsored by the Fort Bend Museum Docents. All proceeds benefit the educational and preservation efforts of the Fort Bend Museum.
