A look at an 18th Century Christmas - before lighted bulbs, Santa Claus and Christmas trees made their appearance in American culture.
Re-Enactors and staff made presentations on various Christmas traditions in each open cabin. Kristi Heasley spoke about 12th Night and offered visitors a sampling of food and drink from the 18th century.
