About

Join us at Marble Springs on Saturday, December 5th from 5-8pm as we usher winter in and decorate for the season!
 
Tour the homes with the soft glow of candles and lanterns, or bask in the warmth of our fire in the tavern. Visit with docents to learn about colonial life and John Sevier and discover how Christmas may have been celebrated at the Governor's home. This event is FREE. Donations are appreciated!
 
As a special Christmas treat, join our Executive Director in the tavern on the top of each hour for a short fire-side presentation on immigrant Christmas Traditions. From the angelic Christkind to the notorious Krampus, discover the traditions and stories that helped shape the Christmas season into what we know today!
 
Be sure to visit our trading post for treats, refreshments, and a hot cup of cocoa!
 
We ask visitors to please wear masks inside our historic structures.
