Welcome!

Historic Charlton Park’s turn-of-the-century village is the setting for Of Christmas Past! Come out and enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes and activities of the late 1800’s. On Saturday and Sunday, December 8-9, 2018, from 11 a.m – 4 p.m., you are invited to tour the village & enjoy Christmas at Historic Charlton Park.

Adults and children are welcome to try their hands at traditional crafts and ornaments, including hand-dipped candles. Tour the village and stop at the Carlton Center Church to listen to live music. Everyone is encouraged to sample traditional holiday fare, wassail, and fresh roasted chestnuts. The gift shop will feature an array of holiday toys, games and keepsakes for all ages. St. Nicholas will also be stopping by!

Admission to Christmas Past is $6 for adults and $4 for children 4 to 12. There is no additional cost for crafts. For more information on the Of Christmas Past celebration, contact Historic Charlton Park at (269) 945-3775.
