Did you know that in the 1860s the Christmas tree was only a few feet high? During the Victorian era, Christmas, like other elements of American life, was transformed by new technologies and evolving traditions. The exhibition will tell the story of the families that lived at the Mansion, how they celebrated the holidays, and highlight the evolution of the American Christmas.
