Join us at the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum on November 27th for several readings of the holiday classic, Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! This program is part of the town of Jonesborough’s “Whoville” holiday celebration which takes place from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. This program will feature a reading of the “Grinch” in our restored parlor room as well as a display of holiday items from our archival collection. We will also talk about the history of Victorian holiday celebration customs and the practice of storytelling during the holidays. Each program will be approximately 35-40 minutes.
This year there will be readings at 11:45, 12:30, 1:15, 2:00, and 2:45. In an effort to provide a safe social distance for program attendees, we will be limiting the attendance at each performance to the first 20 people. Attendees can pick up their tickets at the Chester Inn Museum on the 27th. Tickets for the first program will be available starting at 11:00, and tickets will be available for each subsequent program once the preceding program is finished. You can keep up with the event by following the Chester Inn Museum on Facebook! For questions, please call us at (423) 753-4580, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message us at the Chester Inn Museum on Facebook.
