Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm Christmas Open House

Start your Christmas season with a visit to Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop’s Christmas Open House 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, December 4. Admission is free to this holiday event. 

Visitors can decorate a graham cracker gingerbread house ($3 each), make an ornament, and ride the stagecoach (weather and grounds permitting; $2 each, ages 3 and up).  Father Christmas will be on the historic grounds in the morning and Santa will be in the Heritage Center to hear children’s Christmas wishes from 1-4 p.m.  Santa’s photographer will be on-hand to take photos of visitors with Santa ($4 each). 

Entertainment in the Heritage Center will include music by the Shady Grove String Band and Christmas stories.  Don’t forget to stop by Mrs. Mahaffie’s kitchen to see what’s cooking and help-out with some winter farm chores.  Plus, find those unique gifts and stocking stuffers, including new farm and animal related toys in the site gift shop.
