The Reynolds Homestead hosted about 100 visitors for its annual Victorian Christmas Open House. The day featured something for everyone, including tours of the historic home, live music, refreshments, Victorian Christmas crafts, and photos with Santa.

The homestead also hosted Once Upon a Blue Ridge, a professional educational theater company owned by Peter and Christina Holland of Meadows of Dan, Virginia, to present their 50-minute musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”
