In December the Thankful Arnold House Museum will be decorated to reflect how four different generations of the Arnold Family celebrated the holidays. The kitchen will reflect how Thankful observed the holiday in 1830, and the front parlor will show how her daughter Nancy marked the season around the time of the Civil War. The back parlor will show the late Victorian period when Sabra Arnold Ingersoll resided in the house, and the ell will feature a 1950s Christmas complete with Bing Crosby, hula-hoops, and a tinsel Christmas tree. As visitors walk through each room, they will experience how the holiday has evolved over the last 150 years. Hands-on crafts including mulled cider spice balls and holiday quilling on Saturdays.
