On November 26, at 2:00 pm, Park Manager Bryan Bush will give a 45 minute lecture on the Christmas traditions before the Civil War and during the Civil War. The Civil War solidified the traditions that we know today, such as the Christmas tree, Christmas cards, Christmas carols, and the most important of all traditions: Santa Claus. Cost for the lecture is $5.00 for adults, $4.50 for seniors and veterans and $3.00 for children. Due to limited space, reservations are recommended. Call 859-332-8631 for reservations.
