19th Century Christmas
December 2, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm$8 – $10
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern holidays and experience a real old-fashioned Christmas at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum.
Everyone can join in greeting the yule log with toasts and Christmas Carols. Guests will have a chance to take home a piece of the log for their own holiday fire. Throughout the day, visitors of all ages can join in parlor games, make ornaments, and create pomanders. Father SilhouetteChristmas will be available for visits and photos throughout the day.
This year Fort Nisqually is excited to welcome artist Lauren Muney of Silhouettes By Hand. Lauren’s silhouette portraits of guests are cut freehand with scissors, without drawing or tracing, and are finished in less than two minutes. There is no additional fee for having portraits made. Timed tickets to receive a portrait will be distributed during the event. We suggest visitors arrive early to take home this special memento.
