The 3rd Annual
18th Century Christmas at the Fort

candle1

Visitors  entered the Fort through the Transylvania store, and followed the lanterns from cabin to cabin. There were cabins depicting English, German and Dutch traditions along with a typical frontier cabin at Christmas time. The tavern was in the corner blockhouse where refreshments and entertainment were available and dancing and more was available in the Museum Blockhouse. Children could make ornaments and hang them on the blockhouse tree. From outside came the sound of Christmas revelers, Christmas bells and the Christmas guns - the typical way settlers celebrated any occasion.
