Transport yourself back in time and visit the 1854 restored Greek Revival, Powers-Walker house where volunteers in historical attire will be preparing for winter and the holidays as families did in the mid-19th century. Enjoy the scents of cooking on the wood stove and see the fresh tree decorated with homemade and natural trimmings. Listen to traditional stories, witness a woodworker making toys for his children and immerse yourself in the beauty of the season as it was in simpler times.
Stop by the Lost Valley Visitor Center to make a gift or an ornament using traditional materials and methods. String your own popcorn and cranberry garlands; make your own ornaments from wood, punched tin, or other assorted natural materials. You can also enjoy a cup of hot cider while recordings of old fashioned holiday songs fill the air or venture outdoors and experience the nostalgia of a horse drawn wagon ride in the brisk winter air.
