Join us at the park to help celebrate a Victorian Christmas with free events starting the day after Thanksgiving and ending on January 8th. The house where William Howard Taft was born and grew up will be decorated to reflect the mid-Victorian period from November 25th through January 8. 2016.
On Saturday December 17th, we invite everyone to stop by the site from 11:00 a.m. – 3: 30 p.m. During this time children can learn about the traditions of Christmas and make holiday crafts to take home. Father Christmas will also visit the site and children will receive a free photograph taken with him. The program is free and open to the public.
The celebration will culminate on January 8th when the Friends of William Howard Taft Birthplace hosts the annual New Year’s Open House. From 1- 4 p.m., the public is invited to visit the house and enjoy holiday refreshments, just as the guests to the Taft house would have done in the 1850’s at the birthplace of the nation’s 27th President and 10th Chief’ Justice. William Howard Taft National Historic Site is located at 2038 Auburn Avenue and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., but will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
