Living Christmas Cards

December 11, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Looking for the perfect setting for your holiday card photo? The Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum has you covered!

Stop by the museum on Saturday, December 11th, between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm for the chance to take a photo for your holiday card! The restored parlor room will be decorated in the style of a Victorian Christmas, featuring a tree trimmed with strung cranberries and popcorn, bright greens and fresh fruit, and stockings on the mantle. We will also have tour guides in Victorian costumes on hand to help create the perfect holiday setting.

Visitors will have the chance to use their own cameras or phones to take their own photos for free, or they can make a $3 donation to receive a digital copy of a photograph from our photographer. Each group will have a 5-minute time slot to take their own pictures, and they will have the chance to pose for one photograph from our camera with the $3 donation. Due to limited space and time, we ask that groups be limited to 8 people or less.

This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Tennessee Historical Commission. For more information on the Chester Inn Museum or the Heritage Alliance please call our office at 423.753.9580 or the Chester Inn Museum at 423.753.4580.  You can also contact the organization via email at info@heritageall.org.  Additional information about the Heritage Alliance and its mission can be found online at http://www.heritageall.org/.
