The unique customs of our English, German and French settlers are brought to life while celebrating Christmas at this historic antebellum community. The smell of wood burning fireplaces, period music and authentic decorations make this a “must attend” holiday experience. A special visit by Belsnickle will thrill the children who will be treated with candy or a lump of coal!
