TOWN OF SOMERSET NEW YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY
Enjoying Christmas Past
Imagine going back in time to the Victorian Age and experiencing Christmas the way your great grandparents may have. Set aside the second Sunday of December to visit us and your imagination will come to life.
We decorate the Babcock House in Victorian splendor so you can enjoy the charm of the era. Above you will see some of the beautiful decorations.
Sit and enjoy some of the delicious Christmas cookies as you watch butter churned and biscuits baked in the bee hive oven. If you are patient you will get a taste of the fresh creamy butter on a warm, fresh baked biscuit.
We encourage everyone to dress warmly because horse drawn sleigh rides are offered outside, but you will get some hot chocolate to keep you warm inside. Why not take two rides?
