A "Frosty" Timm House Christmas
Fall is in full swing, there is a chill in the air, and Christmas is just around the corner. Make a visit to the New Holstein Historical Society's Timm House part of your holiday plan. The theme for 2016 is "Frosty at the Timm House".
A blizzard of Frosty snowmen is currently sweeping across the Timm House's lower rooms. The entire first floor will be decorated with an array of snowmen and snowman artifacts. Snowman themed Christmas trees are sprouting in most of the rooms and snowman treats are being assembled for snacking in the historic home's kitchen. This is an opportunity to view the restored Victorian home's already impressive furnishings and get your "Frosty fix" at the same time.
The Timm House will be open for viewing on Saturdays and Sundays starting November 26 and running through December 18th. Hours are from 1:00 to 4:00 PM except for the date of Sunday, Dec. 11 when open hours will be 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. There will also be a special opening from 5:00 to 8:00 PM on Friday, Dec. 2 which will feature Christmas songs and music performed by the Leverenz family. Special tours may be arranged for non-weekend days by calling (920) 948-7748.
Admission to "Frosty at the Timm House" is $5.00 per person age 13 and older and $2.50 for children age 6 to 12. Children age five and under are free. A special selection of New Holstein afghans will also be available for purchase at $20.00 each. Don't miss this opportunity to spend a little holiday time in a home where Christmas has been celebrated for almost 150 years.
