Teaching Museum North and the Roswell Community
Celebrate 1850s Heirloom Holidays December 6 - 8, 2013
The Roswell Community is coming together for a Living History Weekend featuring a 1850s Heirloom Holidays tour of historic homes and buildings. This event is being presented by the Historic Homes of Roswell, Roswell Historical Society, Georgia Ensemble Theatre, City of Roswell Historic and Cultural Affairs, and the Roswell Visitors Bureau.
Along the tour route there will be costumed characters from Roswell's past, compliments of Georgia Ensemble Theatre. Guests are invited to listen to their conversations and even interact with them as if they were actually in the 1850s.
Children and their parents will definitely want to visit the Teaching Museum where they will be delighted by original antebellum photographs of children, a period style decorated tree, and children's toys from this period of time, presented by the Roswell Historical Society. Children will also create an ornament reminiscent of the 1850s. Activities take place from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. and are free of charge, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
