State Historic Site to Host The Spirit of Christmas Past

Old-Fashioned Holiday Family Fun at the Lanier Mansion State Historic Site

 


MADISON, Ind. - Enjoy old-fashioned Christmas fun for children and their families at The Spirit of Christmas Past on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the historic Lanier Mansion State Historic Site and Lanier-Madison Visitors Center, located on the north bank of the Ohio River.

“This year’s program is extra special,” explained Site Manager Gerry Reilly. “Because of our sponsors, we are able to offer this year’s Christmas event for free. This is great since the LanierMansion provides a really grand setting for children wanting to visit Santa.”

Children will be able to take part in a variety of activities including making ornaments for the mansion tree and creating Christmas cards at the card-making station. Master storyteller Bob Hartsaw will recount fascinating Christmas tales as guests delight themselves in the gift shop.  The highlight of the day will be a visit from Father Christmas, a Victorian Santa, in LanierMansion’s north parlor.

Sponsors for the event include Farmer’s Bank of Milton, Historic Broadway Hotel, Madison Tea & Coffee Co., Cocoa Safari, Binzer’s Custom Framing, First Christian Church and Datillo Fruit Company with a special thanks to Bob Hartsaw.

Lanier Mansion State Historic Site is located at 601 West First Street in historic Madison, Ind.
