Holidays in Odessa is Back

Holidays in Odessa

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.

Holiday Exhibit: A Visit from Saint Nicholas

This year's exhibit features scenes from Clement Clark Moore’s, A Visit From St. Nicholas.  This delightful story published in 1822, often referred to "Twas The Night Before Christmas", will be recreated again at the Wilson-Warner House (c. 1769). 

Guests will be invited to recite the classic poem as they tour the delightfully detailed display. Learn more about this exhibit »

Storybook Trees Exhibit

We invite you to join us to view Christmas trees decorated to the theme from your favorite children’s book. This year’s Storybook Trees exhibit is located in Corbit-Sharp House (c. 1774) and will showcase decorated trees in its beautiful period rooms. Learn more about this exhibit »
