A Colonial Christmas

Joel Lane Museum House
Joel Lane Museum House Saturday, December 2nd 11:00am-4:00pm Admission is Free, donations requested.

 The Joel Lane Museum House, “The Birthplace of North Carolina’s Capital,” will sponsor its annual Colonial Christmas Open House celebration. Colonel Lane was a founding father of North Carolina’s capital city and an officer in the Militia during the American Revolutionary War.

The house will be decorated with traditional greenery and will reflect the very different way in which colonists and early Americans celebrated the Christmas holiday. Information about the house and grounds will be offered by costumed docents; re-enactors will demonstrate scenes of 18th-century life; the sounds of live music will fill the air; and other interpreters will entertain children using colonial games and crafts through the “Hands-on History” program.

 

The museum store will be open with a great choice of gifts under $10 for both young and not so young, and the annual bake sale will feature delicious local specialties and traditional delights.
