KIDS ONLY: Comforts and Joy This Holiday Historic Bethlehem’s

Hunt for History Club at James Burnside Plantation House!


Bethlehem, PA – We’re celebrating the holiday season with crafts, colonial stories, and history at the year-end event for Hunt for History this year at Burnside Plantation.   The program, which focuses on Colonial   Christmas  traditions, offers children an opportunity to learn about their history within a historic 18th century colonial farmhouse. 

Children and families can experience the comforts and joys of this holiday season at Burnside Plantation.  Join the festivities   inside the house as we celebrate the season with Moravian sugar cake and holiday punch.  Then children can make a scented pomander ornamented and enjoy the spirit with family and friends.

Join us on Saturday, December 1, 2012  12 – 4 p.m.

The first Saturday in December promises holiday cheer.  Join us from 12 – 4 p.m.

All Hunt for History club events are free for children with paid adult museum admission.
