The McLoughlin House Celebrates “Heritage Holidays” on December 1
December 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC-8
The McLoughlin House Unit of Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in Oregon City, Oregon, has announced a free, family friendly holiday event on Saturday, December 1, 2018. The McLoughlin House will be open from 10 am to 4 pm as part of Oregon City’s multi-site Heritage Holidays Celebration.
The McLoughlin House, 713 Center Street, will host two regular tours scheduled for 10 am and 11 am, followed by an open house from 1 pm to 4 pm. There will be refreshments and music. Docents will be dressed in costumes of the period as they explain the significance of Dr. McLoughlin and his family, and take guests through the house with holiday decorations reminiscent of England in the 1850s. The house will close for the season at the conclusion of the event, and will reopen on February 16, 2019. Please join us then to celebrate the birthday of the State of Oregon!
“It is always our pleasure to participate in Oregon City’s Heritage Holidays Celebration, and welcome visitors as they tour several historic homes in Oregon City,” said Fort Vancouver National Historic Site’s Chief of Interpretation, Bob Cromwell. “The holiday decorations give the house a cozy atmosphere.”
Visitors are encouraged to visit several other museums in Oregon City on that date, also hosting special events: the Stevens-Crawford House Museum, the Ermatinger House, the Rose Farm, and the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. The Heritage Holiday Celebration will end with festivities and the official Christmas tree lighting in downtown Oregon City between 4:30 and 6 pm.
