The annual open house returned after missing a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with tickets and staggered start times for safety.  Reenactors shared stories of how Christmas traditions have changed over the years as visitors enjoyed eggnog, traditional music, holiday gifts for sale and chocolate demonstrations from Robert Lecce.
