Victorian Christmas

The holiday season would not be complete without visiting the Reynolds Homestead to enjoy the traditionally decorated Rock Spring Plantation House, a musical performance, or a children’s movie.  As always, our Christmas tree will be decorated with handmade ornaments from our Homestead Decorative Painters Exchange, all available for purchase and which make wonderful gifts. Make sure and schedule time to visit us this Christmas!
