The event, which was scheduled to occur from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Dec. 6, will take place at the same time the following Friday, according to Tom Wing of Fort Smith, assistant professor of history at the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith and director of the DSHS.


The historic home will be decorated to appear as it did in 1899 for the holiday celebration and will feature Victorian-themed Christmas decorations, including a cornucopia containing real fruit.


Wing said eggnog, wassail, and the Drennen-Scott traditional sugared and salted pecans will be served at the event. Attendees can enjoy free carriage rides, and children will be able to make a Victorian ornament in an arts and crafts workshop. Live Christmas music will be provided.


Limited parking is available. Guests may park near the Crawford County Courthouse and walk to the site, which is slightly over a block away, or ride the free shuttle bus. There is no admission charge.
