Victorian Christmas

Learn how holiday traditions have changed!  Every Saturday and Sunday from November 26 through December 18, you’re invited to experience how Christmas was celebrated during the late 1800s when you tour the 1873 C.C. Beekman House Museum, located at 470 E. California Street in Jacksonville, Oregon, and home to Jacksonville’s wealthiest pioneer family.

Learn about the many cultures that contributed to the Christmas celebration we know.  Find the good luck German pickle ornament on the Christmas tree.  Sing a Christmas carol.  Steal a kiss under the mistletoe.  Hear about presents the Beekmans exchanged.  Sample one of Mrs. Beekman’s sugar cookies.  And visit Mrs. Beekman’s Christmas Bazaar for toys, crafts, collectibles, holiday items, and popular Victorian era gifts.

Victorian costumed docents will be offering these holiday house tours every 20 minutes between 12 noon and 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.  Tour tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Reservations are required.  Bazaar admission is free.  

Tour groups are limited to 8 persons and tickets can be purchased below!  Tours are NOT recommended for children under age 6.

And make sure to check in 5 minutes before your tour.  At that time any unclaimed reservation will be offered to “walk ups.” Walk ups will be accommodated based on space available.  

All Historic Jacksonville, Inc. proceeds help preserve Jacksonville’s historic buildings and expand historic program offerings.
