DescriptionTravel back in time to see how the Shrivers’ may have decorated their home for an 1860s Christmas while hearing the story of the family and how the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War affected them. Christmas tours take place from Thanksgiving Day, November 27th, through December 20th. Private tours for groups of ten or more are welcome at anytime throughout the holiday season; reservations are required.

Guided tours of the Civil War home of George, Hettie, Sadie (7), and Mollie (5) Shriver illustrate how Christmas was celebrated in the mid19th century. The 4’ tall candle-laden Christmas tree sits in its place of honor on the parlor table as a fire roars in the fireplace of the handsome room decorated with holiday greenery. After stringing popcorn for the tree and hanging their stocking on the mantle, Sadie and Mollie set out milk and cookies in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus and his reindeer on that magical night. The smell of pine and popcorn fills the house bringing memories of Christmases past.
