The Spirit of Christmas Past
We've decked our halls for this festive Christmas event. Stroll the 1870s Crossroads Village, house to house, shop to shop, as you learn the origins of many of today's beloved holiday customs.
Many of the village buildings will be busy with holiday preparations: a Christmas dinner will be in the making at the Sisel House; the table will be set for a festive evening meal in the Sanford House; a Christmas tree will take center stage in the Benson House; they'll be singing Christmas carols in St. Peter's Church; and the Thomas General Store will be stocked with special items for the holidays.
Weather permitting, you may enjoy a cheery sleigh ride for a small additional fee per person, and we will be visited by jolly Santa, as he was imagined by Thomas Nast.
This event is also offered Saturday and Sunday, December 8 and 9
