A Victorian Christmas

12-04-houseJacksonville, Ore., — A historic house in Jacksonville is showing visitors what a 19th century Christmas would be like.

The Beekman House – once home to Jacksonville’s wealthiest pioneer family, has been decked out in Christmas decorations fit for a 19th century family.

Visitors can take tours of the house from guides dressed in Victorian costumes, and share origins and traditions from the late 1800’s.

“i never get tired of seeing families come in with children, or different generations of families and their excitement at seeing what a house used to like in an authentic state.” said Stephanie Butler, a Historic Jacksonville board member.

Tours begin every fifteen minutes between 11 am and 3 pm for the next two weekends and one final day on the 26th.

Tours cost five dollars, and each visitor gets a special treat at the end!
