Parents will want to be sure to bring their cameras! After Santa departs at NOON, the house will remain open until 2:00 P.M., for guests who would like to enjoy the beautiful period decorations provided by the Fawn Lake Garden Club.

The house will be open again on Sunday, December 15, from 12:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M., with live period music provided by Evergreen Shade, for visitors who would prefer to enjoy the decorated house in a more relaxed setting.  Friends of Wilderness Battlefield volunteers will be available to talk with visitors about the history of the house and volunteer opportunities with the organization throughout the day.

Because of the beautiful decorations and hard work provided by the Fawn Lake Garden Club and FoWB volunteers, Ellwood will also be open from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM the following week (December 16 – 20) from 12:00 – 3:00 for visitors to enjoy.
