2017 Holiday Exhibit: A Visit from Saint Nicholas

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 10:00am to Sunday, December 31, 2017 - 4:30pm

Come visit the Historic Odessa Foundation this Christmas to celebrate our unique tradition started in 1987. This year for our 30th anniversary we will feature exhibits based on classic children’s literature. 

This unique tradition in Odessa started in 1987 with Clement Clark Moore’s, A Visit From St. Nicholas.  This delightful story published in 1822, often referred to, Twas The Night Before Christmas, from the first line of the story, will be recreated again at the National Register – Wilson Warner House, c. 1769. 

Holiday Exhibit

A Visit from Saint Nicholas

Guests will be invited to recite the classic poem as they tour the delightfully detailed display.  Guests will also have the opportunity to share their experiences with either reading the story to their children and grandchildren or reminisce who first read the poem to them.

The exhibit is located at the National Historic Register Wilson-Warner House in historic Odessa, Delaware.
