'Country Christmas' tour is set for this Saturday

Celebrate the season with "A Country Christmas" tour of Musee de Venoge and the Thiebaud home here in Switzerland County.

"A Country Christmas" takes place this Saturday, December 8th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, with donations greatly appreciated.

Hearken back to the early and mid-19th Century as you enjoy the Christmas holiday as it could have been celebrated on the rural farms in Southern Indiana.

Enjoy a simple country Christmas at 1820's Venoge; and experience the beginnings of the modern Christmas celebrations at the 1860's Thiebaud farmstead. The pleasures of hearth cooking and entertaining of the times will make the day memorable.

Musee de Venoge is one of the few remaining examples of the French colonial architecture that once characterized the first settlement of Switzerland County. The newly restored Thiebaud house is part of the developing Agriculture Museum Center property of the Switzerland County Historical Society. Both properties are listed on the National Historic Register.

Musee de Venoge is located at 111 State Route 129, which is two miles west of Vevay on State Route 56 and one mile up 129.

The Thiebaud Farmstead is located at 5147 East State Road 56, which is about three miles west of Vevay along State Route 56.
