Holiday Happenings at CHS

by Mary Jane McCall

The old mountain yule traditions are celebrated once more on the grounds of the Zachary-Tolbert House.

Are you longing for a way to enjoy the simple Christmases of years gone by? A chance to unplug and unwind, while focusing on the simple pleasures of gathering with children, friends, and family to enjoy the quiet and warmth that the season brings?

When you’re ready for a break from the hustle and bustle, the Cashiers Historical Society invites you to visit the Zachary-Tolbert Housegrounds for a step back in time and a welcome respite from the season’s busy pace.

Bring your children to Col. John’s Cabin on the grounds of the Zachary-Tolbert House for an afternoon of old-fashioned fun. The event, sponsored by Cashiers Historical Society and held on Saturday November 30, and Saturday, December 7, from 11:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M., is a fun-filled couple of hours, complete with Christmas crafts, hot chocolate and cookies for all. There is no charge, but donations are welcomed and appreciated. Space is limited.  

While there, take a moment to capture perfect photos to commemorate the season. The grounds of the historic Zachary-Tolbert House are the perfect place to capture some great holiday pictures. Take a step back in time and carve a little quiet time for yourself here. The exterior of the Zachary-Tolbert House will be decorated, as well as the grounds, and the interior of Colonel John’s Cabin. There’s no admission charge to the grounds and permission is not needed so bring your camera and snap away. The grounds are open daily from dawn until dusk.

Volunteers and Staff also want to remind you that this picturesque setting is a perfect place for taking great photos year round, whether it be for a family reunion, engagement photos, wedding photos or pictures of the whole family enjoying a walk along their scenic nature trail.
