Historic Hanna’s Town will be open for a candlelight gathering at the Tavern, and an opportunity to preview the new holiday merchandise at the Museum Shop.  We will be recreating the ambieHanna's Tavern.jpgnce of an 18th century evening of camaraderie and commerce, and celebrating life in Westmoreland County – then and now.

At Hanna's Tavern:

  • Play a Tavern game with wooden dice 
  • Sample wassail made from a Colonial Williamsburg recipe and other beverages served from the “bar” at the Tavern.
  • Enjoy savory snacks

Stroll by candlelight from the Tavern to the Shop where we’ll serve sweets – including Sally Lunn and Gingerbread with our own private labeled jams and jellies, and freshly brewed gourmet tea.  Browse all our other unique gift items selected with an eye for that early American flair and a Made in America label.
