Furnace Town ushers in holiday

SNOW HILL—Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum will usher in the holiday season on Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday, Dec. 8.
Between noon and 5 p.m. Furnace Town artisans will welcome you to their workplace as they weave, make broom products and pound iron at the forge.
Visitors can take a walk along the Paul Leifer Nature Trail over the Nassawango Cypress Swamp for views of cedar, cypress, and pine above.
Warm up in the Gathering Room with mulled cider and cookies, and browse the Museum Store’s broad selection of treasures made by Furnace Town’s own weaver, blacksmith, broom-maker, printer, woodworker and gardener. The museum also features books on local topics, toys of yesteryear and other local items.
There will be crafts for kids, homemade breads and cookies, jewelry, wooden crafts and more available for purchase. Stroll the grounds to visit many local artisans with their unique crafts on hand.
Join us on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m. for the 19th Century Christmas Service by the Snow Hill Ministerial Association and Rev. Andrew Frick in the historic Old Nazareth Church. The evening church service is free and open at all.
On Sunday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m. there will be a hymn sing with Charlie Paperella and guests.
