Celebrate Holiday Tours -Beauty of Christmas With Holiday Lantern Tours at Sauder Village

Archbold, OH - Reservations are being taken for "Holiday Lantern Tours," an opportunity to experience a turn-of-the-century Christmas at Sauder Village! Again this year, family and friends will be gathering to hear stories of the past and make memories together as they experience holiday celebrations of yesteryear. Advance reservations are needed for this popular holiday event to be held on November 28, December 5, 11 and 12.

"During our annual Holiday Lantern Tours guests are invited to take time out from a busy season to share in the Christmas traditions of long ago," shared Kim Krieger, Media Relations Specialist at Sauder Village. "With a personalized tour, engaging stories from the past and the magical experience of visiting the village by candlelight, guests can truly experience the warmth and beauty of the Christmas season."

On these four special evenings in the Historic Village the flicker of a candle-lit lantern will light the way as a costumed interpreter takes small groups on a journey back in time. Along the way guests will be invited to experience the holiday customs and celebrations in Northwest Ohio in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Because this is a personalized tour, guests will be encouraged to ask questions and interact with the guide - making each tour a truly unique experience!

In the 1910 Homestead guests will meet Mrs. Grime and hear stories about her preparations for Christmas. Our young school teacher will welcome guests to the District 16 School and encourage them to help make a paper chain to decorate the school for the Christmas season. While visiting the Village church guests can join in a hymn sing and will receive a special gift appropriate to the late 1800s. At the Elmira Depot guests can visit with the station master to learn more about what happened in a depot at the turn of the century. Guests can visit the baggage room filled with traditional gifts and citrus fruits and hear stories about the importance of the railroad.

The Holiday Lantern Tours last approximately 90 minutes and will be repeated every half hour from 4:00 - 8:30 p.m. While the Holiday Lantern Tours are family-oriented programs, the tours may be too long for children under six years old to enjoy.

Pre-registration and pre-payment are required for this special program. Cost is $10.00 for adults and $6.00 for students ages 6-16. Special group and Village Membership rates are available for this holiday program. Reservations for the Holiday Lantern Tours can be made online at www.saudervillage.org or by calling Sauder Village at 800.590.9755.

Shopping is also a key part of the holiday experience for many Village guests. The Village Gift Shop, Lauber's General Store and Threads of Tradition Quilt Shop will be open on the evenings of the Lantern Tours. From items hand-crafted by the artisans at the Village to unique books, toys and home décor items - guests are sure to find many distinctive gifts while enjoying a pleasant, unhurried shopping experience. There are also some special shopping events planned for the holidays including a Children's Christmas Shopping Event on Saturday, December 5th with special gift items and free gift wrapping from our Junior Historians.

In addition to the Holiday Lantern Tours, Sauder Village is also offering a number of special Holiday Classes again this year including making a quilled snowflake, mittens and a gingerbread house. Class details and registration information is available online.
