Horne Creek Living Historical Farm, located in Pinnacle, will recreate the warmth of a 1900s era Christmas, as the Hauser family and their neighbors would have experienced, on Tuesday, Dec. 4 and Thursday, Dec. 6.
The farmhouse, decorated with period decorations and lit by oil lamps and the warm glow of the fireplaces, will showcase a variety of holiday activities. These will include caroling accompanied by organ music, along with readings of “The Christmas Story” and “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus.” Solo performances by Tom Southern and Eddie and Melissa Carter will also be featured. A hearty country meal will conclude the evening.
