Good Old-Fashioned Christmas

Experience the Spring Hill Ranch at the height of the holiday season. Let your senses indulge in the aroma of cedar and cinnamon sticks, while strolling through the lively ranch house filled with historic costumed characters enjoying a holiday party and playing historic music. Children can create their very own Christmas tree ornament made from salt dough using glitter, beads, and sand. Originally built in 1881, the ranch house underwent a major rehabilitation project that was completed this year and reopened in May. Come see the changes, including greater accessibility for those with limited mobility. The exterior work also included new tuck pointing, better drainage, porch repair, and rehabilitation of the stone terrace walls. Come visit the house and join along with the historic characters celebrating the season.
