December 2014 Field Trip
December 16 – Clayton House
The December tour is a visit to Clayton, the mansion of Henry Clay Frick, a wealthy American industrialist from the early 20th century. The decoration throughout the mansion shows the traditional Christmas festivities during the Golden Age.
After the tour we will find a nice restaurant nearby for an optional lunch together.
Meeting time & place:10 a.m. at First Baptist Church - 159 N. Bellefield Avenue.
For Those who drive on their own directly to the Frick mansion will meet at 10:30 at the visitor center. Volunteer carpool drivers are needed.
Tour begins at 11:00 for the first group and the next one at 11:30.
Parking: Free parking on site
Seniors and students: $10
Baby in arms/carryall: FREE
Lunch: Together after the tour
(The cost of the lunch will vary depending on what you choose to order, and it is not included in the cost for the tour).
If people choose to visit the museums there instead of going to the restaurant, they may do so on their own. That means they will have to regroup for the transportation back to Oakland.
