Christmas Open House

Come celebrate the Holiday Season at the Trethewey House Christmas Open House! View the historic house decorated with 1920s Christmas flair, enjoy some light refreshments, and get into the spirit of the season with some old-fashioned style and generosity – bring a donation (a non-perishable food item or cash donation) for the Food Bank in lieu of an entry fee!

Trethewey in Wonderland


The MSA Museum Society and Optimist Club cordially invite you and the family to our midsummer event, Trethewey in Wonderland. Taking place on Saturday June 14, 2014, this fair is geared for fun with the whole family. The beautiful scenery of Trethewey House Heritage Site will guide you down the rabbit hole, from 12-4pm.

All ages are sure to have a blast in Wonderland. For the little ones, bouncy castles, art and activities will be sure to get a smile as big as the Cheshire cat. There will also be light refreshments and entertainment to ensure no one becomes the resident Mad Hatter. The official reopening of the train station on our site is also a key feature of the day.

Please join the MSA Museum Society and the Optimist Club as they celebrate this midsummer fair’s ninth unbirthday. This event is free and open to all who are curious enough to follow the white rabbit.
