A Colonial Christmas Open House

December 2, 2017

The Joel Lane Museum House hosts its annual Colonial Christmas Open House. Admission is free, and donations are appreciated. The House, decorated in traditional Colonial holiday splendor, reveals the very different way in which colonists and early Americans celebrated the Yuletide season. Meet re-enactors demonstrating scenes of 18th-century life, while costumed docents share information about the house and grounds, strains of live music fill the air and children participate in colonial games and crafts through the Hands-on History program. The museum store offers a lovely selection of unique gifts for all ages, and the annual bake sale features delicious local specialties and traditional delights. Warm up with a free cup of Wassail (a traditional hot spiced cider drink) while you’re there!
