Event Description

Join us for old-fashioned holiday fun! Hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the smells of a 19th-century Christmas. Listen to the jingling bells as you take a horse-drawn wagon ride.* Chime in with the carolers at the historic Flynn Mansion. Watch demonstrations of old-fashioned letterpress printing and the Victorian “language of the fan.” Make an orange-clove pomander and sniff to identify spices at the Drug Store. Take a whiff of the traditional goodies in the wood-fired oven at the Tangen Home. Make crafts and decorate cookies to take home. Hear stories and help us trim our tree. And don’t forget a visit with good old St. Nick!
