Ever wonder how Christmas was celebrated in the 18th century? Old Tyme Christmas at Fort Massac State Park recreates the holidays of days past.

Period decorations and music accompany re-enactments of Christmas in 1759 at the festively – and historically – decorated museum. Enjoy hot spiced tea and freshly baked cookies from an authentic period oven. Park staff and local historians dress in costumes to celebrate “Joyeux Noel.”
