Christmas at the Houses 2019
Will you be serving Baked Alaska or Grasshopper Pie this holiday season? Maybe offer Tom Collins and Pink Squirrels for drinks? If you enjoy Mid-Century décor, you’ll want to experience this year’s Christmas at the Houses!
The annual holiday event at the Marathon County Historical Society will be from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, December 7, 2019, at 410 McIndoe St., Wausau. Both the Yawkey House Museum and the Woodson History Center will be decked out in holiday finery.
Visitors can wander through the Woodson History Center for free to enjoy seasonal treats and view the Dining Room and Sunroom set up for mid-century (1950-60s) holiday entertaining. A selection of vintage hats and two different vignettes will offer opportunities for fun photos.
Entries in the Sweet Landmarks of Wausau gingerbread contest will be on display.
At the Yawkey House Museum, costumed actors will tell stories about treasured holiday traditions. Tours of the Yawkey House run every half hour, with the last tour at 3:30 p.m. Tour tickets cost $5 and are available at the reception desk in the Woodson History Center.
