Come experience Christmas traditions of the past at the museum as we host our annual Christmas Open House. Many of the thirty historic structures on the museum complex will be open and will feature period Christmas decorations. Light refreshments that would have been eaten by Lexington residents in the 19th century, including hot apple cider and gingerbread, will be served. A blacksmith will be on site practicing his craft and educating visitors about smithing, and a cooking demonstration will be taking place in our ca. 1830 Joel Ridgell kitchen as well.
