Victorian Christmas at Hardman Farm

Friday, Dec 14, 2018 (4 PM to 7 PM)
Saturday, Dec 15, 2018 (4 PM to 7 PM)

Come see the Mansion at West End in period holiday decor and learn about Victorian Christmas traditions from docents dressed in their finest 1870's garb. This open house on Friday and Saturday nights in December is highlighted by twinkling candle lights, visits with Santa, and a trip down the Unicoi Turnpike by horse drawn wagon.

Guests should purchase their tickets in the Visitor Center, which will have a special treat each night, including Christmas music, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, giftshop and more! Guests are advised to bring a flashlight for the walk back to your vehicle.

NEW THIS YEAR!
Guests will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite community group sponsored Christmas tree. Each guest will receive a single ticket with admission. Then guests will have the opportunity to purchase additional tickets ($1/each or 10 for $5) to use for tree voting and to enter our Hardman Farm Holiday Gift Basket raffle ($200 value). At the end of Victorian Christmas (December 15th), the tree receiving the most votes will win the decorating contest and the community group will receive a donation from the Friends of Hardman Farm. So come on out and get in the giving spirit to raise funds for a LOCAL charitable cause and enter a chance to win a fabulous locally crafted gift basket.
