Christmas at the Jacksons'

Visitors will step back in time and experience an 1859 Christmas while interacting with costumed interpreters. Those who attend will be a part of the "preparations" by decorating a Christmas tree with handmade gifts, churning butter or kneading dough in the kitchen, and helping our 1859 visitors pick the proper outfit for dinner.

Admission for the event is nonperishable food for humans and/or pets to benefit the Rockbridge Area Relief Association food pantry. Last year we collected 160 lbs. of food. Help us give back to our local community and come out for an evening of candlelit magic.
