While PHW prepares for Holiday House Tour and Bough & Dough Shop, we wanted to share a few other events by similar organizations that our readers might enjoy this weekend:
Winchester Little Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol is opening today. While the show appears sold out, there is information on their website about seeing if last minute spots open. If you nabbed tickets, thank you for supporting one of PHW’s partner organizations, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy this holiday treat!
Belle Grove Plantation, another one of PHW’s advertising sponsors for the Holiday House Tour, is hosting Inalienable Rights: Free and Enslaved Blacks Crafting a Life in the Shenandoah Valley this weekend. They will be open free of charge and feature special programming on African American history with special guests from The Slave Dwelling Project and Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park. Check the link for more details!
If you enjoy the arts and crafts at the Bough & Dough Shop, you may want to stop by the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley this weekend for the Virginia Gourd Show and Sale. The theme for the 2022 competition is “Gourdigami” in honor of the MSV exhibition ORIGAMI IN THE GARDEN. Gourd artisans will be on site selling art and raw gourds for your own crafting purposes.
The Winchester-Frederick County Historical Society is hosting Maps and Surveys of Winchester November 12 at 10:30 AM in Rouss City Hall. Presenter Tim Youmans will begin the program in council chambers. Afterward, participants are invited to visit the original 1832 Frederick County Clerk’s Office located in the Feltner Building. Judge David S. Whitacre will share reminisces of his grandfather’s and uncle’s tenures as Clerk of the Court.
