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!
