Each site will offer something special for visitors.  Acorn Hall will be decorated to complement its current exhibit:  Iconic Culture:  From Little Black Dress to Bell Bottoms.  There will also be piano music and the crowd-favorite Victorian upside down Christmas tree.

The Ford Mansion, Schuyler-Hamilton House and the Stickley Museum will offer musical interludes throughout the day. At Macculloch Hall visitors can make a Thomas Nast-inspired ornament to hang on a tree.
