Here’s your chance to experience a down home, country Christmas when you attend the Hoover Historical Center’s annual Christmas on Hoover Farm event being held on Sunday, December 6 in North Canton, Ohio.
Located inside Walsh University’s Hoover Park on original Hoover family farmland, the Hoover Historical Center is the boyhood home of Hoover Company (as in vacuum cleaners) founder William H. Hoover. The Victorian Italianate-style farmhouse (built in 1853) served as home to the Hoover family. Visitors to the Christmas on Hoover Farm event will be able to enjoy decorated holiday trees in each room (provided by seven volunteer service groups) and a gingerbread house display supplied by the Girl Scouts. Ladies in vintage attire will be baking cookies in an old-fashioned cast-iron stove and Santa will be on hand to meet with children of all ages.
The Christmas on Hoover Farm event will also include free, live musical entertainment, Christmas caroling and horse-drawn wagon rides through Hoover Park. The wagon rides are $3 per person. Free refreshments like hot chocolate and cookies will be served to all guests. And be sure to stop by the Gift Shoppe to purchase souvenirs.
Hours for the Christmas on Hoover Farm event are 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Admission is free but remember there is a $3 fee for the wagon rides. Parking is free.
