Christmas at Richfield Historical Park
December 2, 2017

Christmas at the Richfield Historical Park was an open house, free to the community and held each December in conjunction with Christmas in Richfield. Young and old from all over the area came to the Richfield Historical Park to experience an old-fashioned Christmas. Like all the events at RHS, it takes a team of many to put this together. Thanks to our volunteers, here are some of the memories from this year’s Christmas at the Park.

Volunteers were ready to greet their guests after spending several hours putting up vintage decorations in the Mill House and Lillicrapp Welcome Center.

 

 


The outside of the Welcome Center and Mill House were festively decorated.


 

 

 

 

The sweet sounds of Christmas music came from the upright piano with a sing-along of carols.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The General Store in the Welcome Center was decked out in vintage finery, toys and candy from long ago plus some wonderful photography of area barns.

 

 

 

 

 

The Christmas tree in the Mill House always has a pickle ornament which is a German tradition.   Any child who found the pickle hanging on the tree won a prize.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Delicious homemade goodies filled the kitchen table. The sweet smell of the woodburning stove greeted the visitors as they entered the Mill House.

 

 

 

 

A wagon ride around the Park was enjoyed on an unusually warm early-December day.
