Old Christmas: Militia Muster at Fort Watauga ~ January 9 & 10, 2010

Saturday & Sunday, January 9 & 10, 2010 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm  

Christmas isn’t over yet! Old Christmas at Sycamore Shoals is one of our favorite Christmas events at Living History Sites! We thoroughly enjoyed stepping back a few centuries to enjoy it!

European migrants brought Old World holiday traditions to America, from the Dutch Sinter Klaus to the Twelve Days of Christmas.  Discover the English, German, Scotch-Irish, and Dutch roots of our modern holiday celebrations. www.sycamoreshoals.org

Since Thursday and Friday brought a winter storm with varying amounts of snow, you might want to CALL first to make sure all is still on at Sycamore Shoals! Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area is located at 1651 W. Elk Avenue in Elizabethton, TN. For more information contact the Park at 423-543-5808.
