More than any other holiday, Christmas celebrations center on the tradition, family, and heritage. Begin a new tradition with your family this year with a visit to Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, where the Christmas customs of the past are brought to life. From the softly glowing lantern light of the 19th century farm to complimentary hot chocolate and cookies, Old Time Christmas is sure to become a favorite holiday pastime for many years to come.
Enjoy Christmas in the 1800s on candlelit guided tours of the beautifully decorated farm. Lanterns and luminaries will abound and the farm will be decked out in festive holiday finery. Stop by the bonfire to get warm and listen to a story or two. See the Christmas putz in the Victorian parlor and watch as the farm family makes special gifts for their loved ones. In the barnyard find the heart of Christmas as you visit the live Nativity complete with farm animals. In the cabin see how the family celebrated the holiday in the early 19th century.
At the schoolhouse the school marm will lead you in singing carols and then off you go to the farmhouse for a visit with an old Pennsylvania German folk character, the Belschnikel. He really knows who has been naughty or nice! Stop by the Christmas Tree Forest where decorated trees sponsored by Quiet Valley families and local businesses will be waiting for guests to vote on their favorite.
Complimentary refreshments and the Holiday Gift Shop are a great way to finish your tour. (The total time of your visit will be about an hour and a half)
