Open house held at Doak House

December 7, 2019   |   4 pm @ Doak House Museum

Enjoy the Christmas spirit the old-fashioned way with a visit to the Doak House Museum Saturday, Dec. 7.

The museum, located on the Tusculum University campus, holds its annual Christmas Open House that day from 4-7 p.m. Attendees can participate in free tours and make crafts while enjoying refreshments in the 1830's house, which will be decorated in the early American Christmas style.

The tour focuses on the history of the Doak family and the beginnings of the Christmas celebrations people in this region know and love today. Through the tour, attendees learn about the vastly different way the Doak family celebrated Christmas compared to today.

“This is a terrific opportunity to enjoy the Christmas season from another perspective and understand the customs of the past,” said Dollie Boyd, director of Tusculum museums. “Through this visit to the Doak House, people might incorporate new ways to celebrate the season that honor the traditions from long ago.”
