  • Sunday, December 3, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

    Take a step back in time and experience the Hubbard House decorated for the Holiday Season. The House will be set to 1910, the first holiday season after Katherine Hubbard is married. Returning home for the Holidays with her new husband, they find the house a buzz with activity. Guests are visiting, the cook is hard at work and the sibilings are all home for the Holidays with their mom. Days before Christmas, the Hubbard Milling Ledger goes missing. Question the characters, figure out their motives (as everyone is a suspect) and discover who took the Ledger book during this year's Christmas at the Hubbard House. 

    If mysteries are not for you, stop in to see the house decorated for the season, as the decoractions change every year!
