Enter the year 1816 for a Croghan family celebration at Locust Grove. The Clark & Croghan families invite you into their home to visit and to partake of holiday cheer. The home is decorated in a manner appropriate for the “country seat” of Major William Croghan and his distinguished relatives and guests. In the great parlor, live music and dancing await the guests, intermingled with concerts by a talented neighbor. You’ll be engaged in lively conversations with family and guests. Out in the hearth kitchen, recently harvested foods are prepared over an open fire and refreshments are offered to guests. Meanwhile, back in 2014: in the Visitors’ Center, there will be dancing, music, refreshments, and crafts for children 3 & older from 6:00-8:00 p.m. each day. Also in the Auditorium, a sale of gift-quality new, gently used, and antiquarian books. Admission: $6 adults, $3 children, or $18 maximum per household.
