Abingdon Muster Grounds holiday open house

December 11th, 2012 6:00 pm by Staff Report

How were the holidays spent during the Revolutionary War and Civil War eras?


Visit the Muster Grounds to learn about holiday traditions from the past, get a rare glimpse into the rooms of “Retirement” (circa 1813), sit by a backcountry fire, and enjoy refreshments. Historical interpreters will guide visitors through the holiday traditions of years gone by and will tell the story of Stoneman’s Raid and Kate Fulkerson’s wedding feast, December 14, 1864. The Keller Interpretive Center will be open for extended hours. Guided tours of new exhibits will be available. The Holiday Open House will take place on Sunday, December 16, 2012 from 3:00-7:00 pm.
