For two days, December 3 and 4, the Eden Woolley House is transformed for Christmas and Hanukkah. The child-like magic of the season is brought to life. Model trains encircle “Christmas in the City.” Doll houses, decorated to the smallest detail, line the walls. “Toys from the attic” are on display, triggering memories of holidays past.
There is a walking tour of the Museum grounds and sites surrounding it at 1 and 3 on Saturday and again at 1 on Sunday. There are story times throughout the weekend for the little ones, who are invited to bring their dolls or teddies with them, as well as a “teddy bear hunt” and other surprises.
On top of all that, the oldest room in the house (circa 1750) becomes a Holiday Shoppe, full of wonderful handmade items—perfect gifts. Charming outfits for American Girl Dolls and teddy bears. Hand-knit hats for children of all ages. Hand-quilted throws and much more.
There is a bakery with homemade goodies—just right for home or hostess gift. The porch becomes a florist shop—where the Ocean Township Garden Club offers wreathes and swags they have crafted for the holiday.
To top the weekend, our handmade quilt winning raffle ticket is drawn at 3 p.m. on Sunday. All in all, it’s a chance to start the season in style, share memories with family and friends, and get a jump on holiday shopping with one-of-a-kind, Museum-made treasures.
We hope to see you there!
