Christmas At Woodlawn


Planning is well underway for Christmas at Woodlawn and we are again inviting businesses to join us for The Trees of Woodlawn celebration this December. Our guests have enjoyed seeing the rooms and hallways of the Black House decorated with trees of all shapes and sizes. Last year we had 40 businesses and organizations participate. It has been a huge success and has brought a lot of holiday cheer to Downeast Maine.

Christmas at Woodlawn draws hundreds of visitors from December 1st to 23rd when the museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Children (and adult) holiday tour guests can visit with Santa on our sunporch on Saturdays, starting December 14…bring your camera and take a photo with Santa!

Take the special Black House audio tour on the history of Christmas at Woodlawn and in New England and let the festive decorations fill you with holiday spirit.
