Old-Fashioned Christmas in the Village

12/9/2023 | Arrow Rock State Historic Site | Arrow Rock, MO

Join state historic site staff, friends and family as we open up the site buildings for a Christmas from long ago. You are invited to tour the buildings, which will be decorated for Christmas, and visit with interpreters.

As you wander through the site, you may stumble upon the judge and the lawyer in the Old Courthouse as they prepare to end the year. Stopping by the tap room of the tavern, you will have the opportunity to visit with travelers from the trail, and in the academy, you will see the young ladies preparing for Christmas while the schoolmarm takes a break. Up the hill, a family will be preparing for Christmas dinner at the George Caleb Bingham home, and you will be able to warm up by the fire in the kitchen and say hello to the cook.

At the very end of the tour, you'll have a moment to reflect on the real meaning of Christmas. 

As the event draws nearer, more activities will be added, and we hope to have carriage rides and carolers in town.

If you have attended in the past, we encourage you to come back. 

The pathway will be lit, but you are encouraged to bring a flashlight. 

Event Time: 5 p.m.
