Old Christmas at the Michael Braun Haus this weekend

Dec. 28 • 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Dec. 29 • Noon-3 p.m.

The Rowan Museum is hosting its 35th annual German Christmas Celebration at the Old Stone House on Saturday and 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 era very simply with natural greenery, dried flowers, herbs, fruits and berries.

Tours of the historic house and the recreation 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.

The Mecklenburg Militia will be on hand firing muskets and skirmishing, there will be open fire cooking with lots of samples, as well as music, children’s games, and more.
Holly sprigs will be available for all to toss into the fire to burn their troubles away for the year, looking forward to a new year.

Admission to the celebration is $5 for adults and $3 for students. For more information, call the Rowan Museum at 704-633-5946, or email office@rowanmuseum.org.

The Old Stone House is located at 770 Old Stone House Road, Salisbury.
