Winter Reimagined is Tower Hill’s largest annual fund raiser has exploded in popularity in recent years. During the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, the staff and volunteers dress the gardens and plant collections to the nines in glittering lights, handmade decorations (with materials culled from nature and the recycle bin), and all things designed to illuminate our visitors’ mid-winter days and chase the doldrums. Much to the delight of Tower Hill staff, more people than ever from far and near are discovering that Tower Hill’s Winter Reimagined is the place to be to be part of the celebration during some of New England’s longest nights. For this reason, the library’s pass to Tower Hill will not be accepted during Winter Reimagined, which runs after November 25 through January 8, Wednesday through Sundays from 4-9pm. Event tickets must be purchased online from Tower Hill for Winter Reimagined. Library passes will be valid for day visitors from 11am to 3pm, but outdoor lights will remain off each day to conserve energy until 4pm. Visitors must have a separate Winter Reimagined ticket to view the lights. Day visitors must depart the property at 3pm. During this period, Tower Hill will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as December 24, 25, 31 and January 1.
