Season's greetings from 1895
The Gunderson House in Kenyon was alive with festivity during its annual Christmas dinner on Saturday, Dec. 9.
Members of the Kenyon Area Historical Society hosted the event, which included a horse-drawn carriage ride, tours of the historic home, harp music, an abundance of food and a piano-led holiday sing-along.
Volunteer chefs cooked up a Norwegian feast that would have been welcomed by the home's original residents in the Victorian era. Rooms were decorated for Christmas and volunteers from the high school partnered with historical society members to serve guests and give tours.
The dinner cost $30 per person and was limited to 40 guests. This event helped raise funds for the home's necessary maintenance and roof repairs.
The Gunderson House is open for visitors June to September on the third weekend of the month and can be rented for special occasions.
