The Holidays at Newell Pioneer Village –
Visitors have requested that we consider being open for more days during the holiday season. Our Oregon DAR Chapters do such a wonderful job of decorating the Village for the holidays and they also would like us to stay open longer to share the holiday season with you, our visitors. Chapter members will host these days and we will be open to the public from 11 am to 3 pm: December 3rd and December 10th. We hope you can find a day to join us!
Holiday Candlelight Tour at the Newell Pioneer Village – December 2nd, 2017, 3:30- 6:00 pm
Ever wonder what the Holidays were like for the pioneers of the 1850’s? Come see an evening of living history while visiting with the Newells and their guests. See the decorations as you carol along the Newell House paths, visit in the schoolhouse to see what preparations the children are making for Christmas with their instructor, and enjoy some apple cider and treats. Stop in at the Pioneer Mothers Memorial Cabin and sing a song or two by the fire. Activities for the entire family! A favorite for visitors every year.
