Christmas In The Country

Bring the family for a great day experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of an old fashion country Christmas. Learn how the holiday traditions of the 19th century differ from those of the 21st through hands-on historical interpretations, carols, traditional decorations and more!

Tour our simply decorated historic buildings and grounds, see our model trail display, print a post card on our antique printing press, help with everyday chores like churning butter, and learn about Florida’s Governors. Plus help us with our holiday crafts and chores: make salt dough ornaments, design Christmas card ornaments, decorate our school house with paper chains, and more!

$2 Dip a beeswax candle — cash only
$2 Twist a rope — cash only
$2 Decorate a stocking — cash only
