Victorian Christmas

Thursday, December 7, 2017

See the splendor of a Victorian Christmas featuring the evolution of the Christmas village from a putz or nativity scene to glitter and ceramic houses. Period style decorations are used throughout including Dresdens and glass icicle ornaments like the ones the Pennypacker family used. There is a special children’s Christmas area with their own tree, a Noah’s ark and dollhouse and other toys, as well as a variety of special candies. For adults, see rustic and refined bedrooms to inspire your holiday decorating. The Friends of Pennypacker Mills are raffling a fully decorated feather tree. Our Museum Shop has period style glass, felt and metal ornaments and decorations as well as Wilbur buds, clear toy candy, caramels and much more. Guided tours are offered during regular hours, but we will be closed 12/24 & 12/31, & all Mondays. Decorated through Sun., Jan. 7, 2018
