Victorian Christmas
Experience what Christmas celebrations were like during the 1850s-1860s!

Friday December 17, 6:00pm-8:00pm
Saturday December 18, 10:00am–5:00pm
Sunday December 19, 10:00am–3:00pm  

Talented reenactors from the “Bonnets and Crooked Hats” will move into the Village this December, living in the log cabin, Caswell House, and parsonage for one weekend. They will cook their meals over the fire, read and sew by candlelight, and prepare for Christmas as Americans would have done during the Victorian era. They’ll perform activities of the season like playing games, decorating, exchanging gifts, and calling on friends.

You can visit them and experience the sights, sounds, and scents of Victorian Christmas for yourself when you tour the Village on December 17, 18, and 19. Enjoy carols, kids’ crafts, Christmas traditions mini-exhibit, and hot cider and cocoa. Each date will feature a different set of visitor activities and entertainment. You can register to visit on just one day or stop in throughout the weekend to see what the reenactors are up to with a weekend pass! Fun for all ages. 

Because this event is designed for all ages, we ask that all visitors wear masks while inside the buildings so everyone can celebrate the holidays and stay healthy. For more details about the Village’s masking policy, please visit
