Last Christmas of the Civil War planned at Roscoe Village

| December 1, 2014

COSHOCTON – Roscoe Village invites guests to join them as they bring together a Civil War troubadour, a chaplain, a veteran, a Civil War Santa and Abraham Lincoln in a very special commemoration of the 150th anniversary with The Last Christmas of the Civil War.

Warm cider and cookies along with a visit with a Civil War Santa will be offered immediately after the program at 6:45 p.m. All these wonderful activities take place during the first Roscoe Village Christmas Candlelighting on Saturday, Dec. 6, beginning at 6 p.m. Special holiday music will take place on stage at 5 p.m. by the First Baptist Church of West Lafayette prior to the Candlelighting program.

Additional activities such as horse-drawn carriage rides, roasted chestnuts, Christmas crafts, and A Roscoe Christmas tour will take place throughout the day. No visit is complete without time for your holiday shopping in the famous shops of Roscoe Village, fine dining in one of three restaurants located in the village and a tour through the nationally accredited Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum.

Roscoe Village will host two additional candlelighting programs on Saturday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 20. The second candlelighting, offered by the Roscoe Village Business Association, will have a local theme. The third and final program of the season, A Victorian Christmas Remembrance, will be hosted by Central Ohio Technical College.
