Step back in time and experience the traditional Christmas festivities of early 1800s Newport at the Whitehorne House. Interact with costumed interpreters portraying life in the Whitehorne House as they prepare for Christmas. Learn about the differences between holiday celebrations past and present from decorations to dining and even Christmas trees. Receive a booklet of authentic recipes from Mrs. Whitehorne's own Sugar House Book. This interactive family program is presented by the Newport Restoration Foundation and the Newport Historical Society.
