The Jefferson Township Museum, also known as the George Chamberlain House, will be open for the “Christmas in the Village” celebration.

Opening hours for the Museum for the weekend are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, and 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, December 2.

“A Gingerbread Christmas” is the theme of this year’s decorations. The Museum is decorated by members of the Museum Garden Club and the Jefferson Township Historical Society. Docents dressed in period costumes will be on hand, and hot mulled cider will be served outside by the pot-bellied stove on the banks of the brook. Mrs. Santa Claus will be making an appearance.

Admission to the Museum is free. The Jefferson Township Museum, located at 315 Dover-Milton Road, is on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Be sure to visit Miss Elizabeth’s Shoppe located in the original kitchen of the Museum, where collectibles, handmade and handcrafted items, jewelry, and gift items will be offered for sale at very reasonable prices for your holiday shopping.
