Shelton House Prepares for the Holidays!

Shelton House is preparing for all our special events to take place over the Holidays! On December 8, we will host our annual Appalachian Family Christmas event. Santa Claus visits (photo op for the kids!), refreshments are served in the historic barn, have a tour in the Victorian Farmhouse decorated for Christmas, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and enjoy a Grand Illumination of the house and our new “Tinsel Trail”.  Carolers will stroll the grounds and house encouraging visitors to join in song. As the Event winds down, all will gather on the front porch and lawn to sing Christmas carols, hear “The Night Before Christmas” and be dazzled when the inside and porch lights are turned off. “Oh Holy Night” is then sung in darkness, then the exterior, interior and Tinsel Trail lights are illuminated! The Tinsel Trail will remain lit until 9 pm, that night and every night, through January 4, 2020.
