Experience Christmas as Gaston County farmers and mill workers did in the 1890’s. Learn what the blacksmith did during the winter, listen to popular mill songs of the time, look at the way farm and mill homes were decorated, enjoy hot cider and cookies while singing along to Christmas carols in the Chapel, and perhaps take a carriage ride. Children will receive historically accurate commemorations of their visit.
Sponsored by Gaston County Parks and Recreation and the Gaston County Historical Preservation Commission.
