Christmas Open House at Schumacher Homestead, December 3-4

The Bluffton/Pandora Swiss Community Historical Society Christmas Open House, “Christmas at the Homestead” will be held for two days, December 3 and 4, from 2:00-6:00 p.m. at the Schumacher Homestead, located at 8350 Bixel Road, Bluffton.

The public is invited to tour the decorated 1843 house, snack on treats in the summer kitchen and listen to songs of the season. Guests can watch food being prepared in the fireplace, hand dip a candle, play a game of checkers, shop in the gift shop and chat with staff about the history of the house and typical life in the 1840s.

Guests arriving at dusk will be able to see the house lit by candles much as it would have been in the 1843.

The event is free to the public, but donations will be gratefully accepted.
