Special Victorian Christmas Tours will begin at 1 pm and will depart from the DuBois Fort Visitor Center at 1 pm, 1:30 pm, 2 pm, 5 pm, 5:30 pm, 6 pm, 6:30 pm, and 7 pm.

At 3 pm, join us at the Crispell Memorial French Church for a Victorian Christmas Concert with beloved historical musician Linda Russell, celebrating 19th century Christmas in America.  Guests will hear the stories behind well-known carols and learn about carols by the great poets of the day, including Dickens, Thackery, and Longfellow.  A wonderful meeting of the old beloved carols and the fascinating less familiar ones - all to the strains of hammered and mountain dulcimers.

At 4:30 pm, join us and our festive carolers in front of the Deyo House for our first annual Community Christmas Tree Lighting,  followed by a reception of holiday treats and refreshments in the DuBois Fort.
