An 1850s Christmas at the Moffatt-Ladd House

November 19, 2022 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 am

| $4 – $25

An 1850s Christmas at the Moffatt-Ladd House
Saturday, November 19, 10am to 1pm.

$5 per child (5-18)/$10 per adult; $25 for family of 4 or more, children under 5 are free.

On January 1, 1851, Charlotte Ladd Coues published an article she wrote for the Portsmouth Journal. She described the new holiday traditions that were beginning to take hold in New England. Traditions like stockings hung by the fire, Christmas trees, and tales of old Saint Nicholas! 

Come visit the Moffatt-Ladd House as we re-imagine what the Ladd family might have done to prepare for celebrating the holiday. Decorating the house, setting up Christmas trees, making gifts, preparing a holiday meal for friends and family, and spending time with each other.  Visitors will meet Charlotte, her mother Maria, and their family as they walk through the festively decorated first floor of the Moffatt-Ladd House. We’ll have readings of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, a holiday craft for the little ones, refreshments, and even a visit from Santa!  Join us for this first-ever early Victorian Christmas at the Moffatt-Ladd House!

Advance tickets are encouraged and can be purchased online (see below) or by phone: 603-430-7968.
Tickets will be available at the door as well.

For questions or more information, please call 603-430-7968 or email info@moffattladd.org.
