The Joel Lane Museum House, "The Birthplace of North Carolina's Capital," will sponsor its annual Colonial Christmas Open House celebration on Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, and donations are requested.

The house will be decorated with traditional greenery and will reflect the very different way in which colonists and early Americans celebrated the Christmas holiday. Information about the house and grounds will be offered by costumed docents; re-enactors will demonstrate scenes of 18th-century life; the sounds of live music will fill the air; and other interpreters will entertain children with colonial games and crafts through the "Hands-on History" program.

Colonel Joel Lane was a founding father of North Carolina's capital city and an officer in the Militia during the American Revolutionary War.
