Celebrate an Old Stone House Christmas this weekend

GRANITE QUARRY — The Rowan Museum, Inc. is sponsoring its 27th annual German Christmas Celebration at the Old Stone House (1766) on Stone House Road in Granite Quarry on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 31-Jan. 1.
The hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
The house is closed during November through March, but will open for the holiday celebration the weekend just following Christmas. The Old Stone House will be decorated as it would have been during pre-Revolutionary days — very simply with natural greenery, dried flowers, herbs, fruits and berries.
Tours of the historic house and the enhancement of a colonial family’s Christmas celebration in Rowan County will highlight the weekend. Guides in period costumes will be on site, and guests will enjoy learning about customs and participating in crafts, musket firing, woodworking (benches, bowls and spoons), weaving, candle making, open fire cooking with lots of samples, music, children’s games, goats and chickens and much more.
Holly sprigs will be available for all to toss into the fire to burn their troubles away for the old year, looking forward to a new year.
Admission to the celebration is $4 for adults and $2 for students. For more information, call the Rowan Museum at 704-633-5946, or email rowanmuseum@carolina.rr.com
The house is located one half mile down Old Stone House Road off Highway 52 in Granite Quarry in eastern Rowan County, just a few miles off I-85.
