Old Fashioned Christmas at the 1803 House...December 5, 2020 from 10am to 2pm [Flyer]: This year because of Covid-19, our event will be held outside at the 1803 House homestead. We have adjusted our event offering: free ornament kits for the children to craft at home; our annual sale of natural homemade Douglas Fir wreaths and/or wreath kits to decorate at home; and holiday items and church baby sale. There will be a demonstration on how holiday wreaths were decorated back in 1803. We are adding something new this year, a drive by "Merrie Wine Pull". Please stop by for a visit.
In the past visitors enjoyed the fire in open hearth baking gingerbread or beef stew, warm cider, holiday treats, Christmas tree with colonial decorations, window sills decorated by members of the Emmaus Garden Club, scale Emmaus building models built by Andre Fatula, children's craft, "1803 House Church Baby" sale, annual homemade wreath sales and holiday tours of the 1803 House.
