Santa will be located in the 1885 Foster School House along with a Christmas Tree courtesy of Cardinal Creek Farms.

The setting provides a backdrop for Old Fashion Christmas pictures with Santa.

Only one (1) family will be allowed in the Foster School House, at a time.

An old fashioned school bench, sanitized between uses, will offer visitors a place to visit with Santa while he is seated on the other side of the Christmas tree.

Santa will be wearing a mask and social distancing. All visitors wanting to participate are asked to do the same. Museum staff will be taking the temperatures of visitors before entry to the museum grounds.

Please dress for outside temperatures. Volunteers will be on hand to help with social distancing and hand sanitizing.
