Without a doubt, one of the Historical Society’s most successful and satisfying events each year is our “Home for the Holidays Festival.” We’ve been doing it a very long time, so we should know!
Orchestrated with the help of dozens of volunteers, community members and sponsors, this free, multi-day spectacular kicks off the holiday season at the Temple, home of the Lewis County Historical Society. Come see the beautiful historic Christmas decorations, our magnificent festival of the trees, a ginger bread house display, silent auctions of decorated Christmas trees and wreaths, as well as raffles and sales on gift shop items. It is truly a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season.
As always, we are open on multiple dates (November 17-18, November 24-25 and December 1-2 from 10 am through 5 pm), when you can come into the Temple and experience the beauty of Christmas. We will also have a wonderful Holiday Concert by the Adirondack Community Chorus on Thursday, November 30, at 7 pm. And, or course, Santa will come for the kids on Friday, December 1, from 6 to 8 pm. We’ve already got it on our calendar — so it’s definitely something you should put on yours!
