Dec 10th:  A Christmas Celebration

Spend a day experiencing how our mid-19th century ancestors would have prepared for Christmas. Skilled interpreters will share the customs of French, English and German settlers. Christmas carolers will provide a musical backdrop and piping hot tea will warm you as you stroll through the decorated antebellum structures. Children will be delighted by a visit from "Belsnickle".
