Christmas in the Piedmont

Event Description

Visit Bennett Place during the Christmas season and witness how this occasion was celebrated in the Piedmont during the Civil War.  Living historians will decorate the farm in a typical modest fashion of the time.  There will be cooking demonstrations in the kitchen house, Christmas decorations and packages in the main house, soldiers will be on hand to demonstrate Christmas in the field and of course, a visit wouldn't be complete with out seeing Old St. Nick.  There will be complimentary hot apple cider available at the visitor center as well as our annual bake sale where you can purchase some sweet treats.  All proceeds from the bake sale go towards the preservation of the site.
