On Saturday, December 15, Friends of Wilderness Battlefield will host our 10th annual event: “A 19th Century Christmas at Ellwood Manor.” The doors will open at 9:00 A.M. and children of all ages may visit with Santa and enjoy making period arts and crafts until 12:00 P.M. Parents will want to be sure to bring their cameras! After Santa departs at NOON, the house will remain open until 2:00 P.M., for guests who would like to enjoy the beautiful period decorations provided by the Fawn Lake Garden Club.
The house will be open again on Sunday, December 16, from 12:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M., with live period music provided by Evergreen Shade, for visitors who would prefer to enjoy the house in a more relaxed setting. Friends of Wilderness Battlefield volunteers will be available to talk with visitors about the history of the house and volunteer opportunities with the organization throughout the day.
As always, this event at Ellwood is free and open to the public. Donations are always welcome and appreciated.
