Victorian Christmas Open House
December 8, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrate a Victorian Christmas Open House with a lively handbell choir and a Victorian Santa Claus on the mansion porch. Inside the mansion see living historians portray family and friends within the beautifully decorated rooms. At each room, meet an interpreter who will share how the Christmas holiday we celebrate today all started back in the early 1900’s. In the kitchen, see a demonstration of how clear toy candy is made in multiple shapes. From wrapped presents to the idea of sending Christmas cards, what a German Putz represents, and what children wished for at Christmastime, you can see how our treasured traditions came to be. Holiday history not to be missed!
