Christmas Open House at Point of Honor

  • Point of Honor

For the first time, Point of Honor will celebrate Christmas during the Late Victorian Era. Queen Victoria of England ruled from 1837-1901 and the Late Victorian Era is generally considered to be 1880-1900. This was a time of great change in America, with telephones and electricity becoming wide spread in urban areas along with street cars and better access to shopping and services.
