1875 Christmas at Ridge House Museum

Don’t get lost in the season’s hustle and bustle come out to the Ridge House and get into the 1875 Christmas Spirit! Your senses will take you there as the Ridge House will once again be decorated with the freshest and most fragrant greens, nuts, pomanders, and berries. Come in during the week and your tour guide may lead you in a rousing chorus of Christmas carols or, after your weekend tours, enjoy a hot cup of apple cider and buttered popcorn. Bring the whole family or your crafty group of friends to make traditional Victorian paper ornaments. There is something for everyone every afternoon December 1 to 23 this year!

On December 8, check out the Ridge House Museum staff and volunteers as we participate in the Ridgetown Santa Claus parade with a very unique float. After the parade, retreat to the warmth of the Ridge House Museum for our Christmas Open House to admire the decorated and candle lit Christmas tree, enjoy some festive carols, and decorate a gingerbread cookie!

This will also be your last chance to see the Community Roots exhibit. Community Roots traces the history of agricultural development around Ridgetown through the family histories of participating century farm families. The Ridge House Museum would like to thank the following families: Dean Atkinson, Stan Brien, Don and Janet Campbell, Doug and Shirley Clark, Allan and Norine Duck, Alek Mervin, and Walter Spence. Without their contributions, this exhibit would not be possible.

Ridge House Museum is located at 53 Erie Street South in Ridgetown, and is open for Christmas daily December 1 to 23, 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Group tours and education programs are welcome with advanced booking. For more information please contact Ridge House Museum curator by phone, 519 674 2223, or email,
