Dinehart Holt House to host Very Victorian Christmas

SLAYTON — The Murray County Historical Society invites everyone to attend a “Very Victorian Christmas!” Holiday Open House from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 11 at the Historic Dinehart Holt House, Slayton.

The free event features a house full of trees decorated by volunteer organizations, businesses and individuals. Hot apple cider and Christmas goodies will be served.

There will be horse drawn sleigh rides by Foggy Meadows Farm. There is a charge for rides, which is a fundraiser for the historical society. Children under 5 are free, as are veterans in observance of Veterans Day.

The fully decorated house will be open throughout the holiday season for tours during

regular museum hours. Non-profit organizations can rent the home for a donation. Private parties pay on a sliding fee scale.

The Victorians created Christmas as we know it today. Many favorite holiday traditions began in that era, from an ornately decorated tree to Christmas cards and caroling. This year’s Holiday Open House will celebrate all that is elaborate about the Victorian era.
