The Jefferson Township Museum, also known as the George Chamberlain House, is proud to present “A Woodland Christmas” as part of the “Christmas in the Village” celebration. Opening hours for the Museum Christmas Weekend are 10 to 4 on Saturday, December 1, and 12 to 4 on Sunday, December 2. “A Woodland Christmas” will create a feeling of being in a rustic lodge where Santa will be greeted by his woodland friends. Each room of the museum will be decorated using natural materials. The Christmas celebration is the only time the antique harmonium in the parlor is played. The Museum is decorated by members of the Museum Garden Club and the Jefferson Township Historical Society. Docents dressed in period costumes will be on hand, and hot cider will be served outside by the pot-bellied stove. Admission to the Museum is free. The Jefferson Township Museum, located at 315 Dover-Milton Road, is on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Be sure to visit Miss Elizabeth’s Shoppe located in the original kitchen of the Museum, where small antiques, collectibles, handmade and handcrafted items will be offered for sale for your holiday shopping.
