Take a step back in time for a Victorian Christmas celebration at historic Pennypacker Milles, the 18th-century mansion used by General George Washington as temporary headquarters during the Revolutionary War.
Pennypacker Mills’ Victorian Christmas Open House features the melodic sounds of a bell choir, the hearty laugh of Santa Claus, and the beautiful sights of the holidays. Get transported into a historic holiday celebration complete with gorgeous decorations and a dining room table set for Christmas Day.
Walk through the newly restored servant area to see the working kitchen filled with holiday foods, a clear toy candy demonstration, and busy reenactors.
Afterwards, visit the museum shop for vintage-inspired gifts, ornaments, holiday candies, and more.
Through January 4, 2014
