"Holiday Jubilee at the 1897 Poe House," a favorite seasonal event, features the Coventry Carolers and the Cross Creek Chordsmen performing for visitors on the Poe House front porch. For the fifth year Santa Claus will be in attendance to pose for pictures and interact with the children. It is free for families to visit Santa and take their own Santa photos. Other highlights of this event include historic cooking, a holiday craft, and of course the beautifully decorated Poe House. Admission is FREE. Donations are gladly accepted, suggested donation is $1 per person.
