Christmas on the Farm

December 2, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

1859, a nation on the brink of war, a slave uprising narrowly avoided, a son far from home…Is a Merry Christmas possible?

Join us at the historic Bushong Farm.  Visit with our living historians and discover how a family carries on in the face of national crisis.  There are games to play, stories to hear, treats to eat, songs to sing, and a visit from a special Christmas visitor.

1864, a nation divided, yet another Christmas far from home, lonely hearts, and short rations…Is a Merry Christmas possible?

Visit the soldiers of Company F, 51st Virginia Infantry and bring some Christmas cheer to them far from hearth and home. Lend a hand with chores or join in the holiday celebration!  Free with park admission. $10 for ages 13 and older.  $5 for ages 6-12. Children 5 and under are free.  8895 George Collins Parkway.  More information at 540-740-3101.
