Settlers’ Christmas Event

As a Settlers’ Plant Sale customer, we know you have visited the Swinney Homestead in the spring. And yes, do mark your 2016 calendar for the May 6 & 7 Plant Sale. But, the old house is most lovely when decorated for Christmas. We would love to have you join us for “Christmas at Home” with the Swinney Sisters and see the 1844 Swinney House at its Victorian best.
