Have a delightful luncheon with Mrs. Martha Washington. Sing familiar Christmas carols in an early American Chapel. Visit with patriots of the past in replicas of some of America’s most cherished buildings. Take a glimpse into what life was like for the Continental Army at Valley Forge.

You can experience all this and more at the American Village’s annual Colonial Christmas Lunch and Tour, offered Dec. 5-8. This popular Christmas event is the perfect outing for your family, church group, office or club. Two tours are offered each day, Tuesday through Friday. One begins at 10:30 a.m. and concludes with a luncheon at noon. The second begins with the noon luncheon and is followed by a tour, ending at 2:30 p.m.

The American Village is taking reservations for their Colonial Christmas Lunch and Tour at (205) 665-3535 extension 1031, or by email at Christmas@AmericanVillage.org. Tickets are $25 per person, and pre-reservations are required.
