Sunday evening closed out the annual holiday Open House at the Trail End State Historic Site. Often called Kendrick Mansion, the museum came alive with the sights, sounds, and scents of Christmas from the early 1900's.
The three-day event featured live performances by local musicians, figgy pudding, plus hot apple cider. Site Superintendent Cynde Georgen says the museum was filled with holiday goers.
Father Christmas made his appearance upstairs.
Twenty-seven volunteers put in countless hours decorating the mansion from top to bottom. For Georgen, there something about live Christmas music that begins the holiday season.
The Open House has been held for over 30 years.
