Poe House Hosts Victorian Jubilee
Celebrate the Christmas season with Victorian flair at the annual Holiday Jubilee at the 1897 Poe House, in Fayetteville, Sunday, Dec. 2, from 1 to 5 p.m.
The Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex hosts this free event, featuring a concert by Fayetteville's Coventry Carolers. The Coventry Carolers will perform on the front porch of the Poe House at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.
The house will be elaborately decorated for a Victorian Christmas, providing a beautiful backdrop for this festive event and will be open between the caroling performances.
The Poe House kitchen will be alive with the smells of Christmas goodies cooking on the 1902 Glenwood stove. Kids and kids at heart can become elves in "Santa's Workshop" by making an elf hat and putting together a wooden toy glider, tugboat, race car or a train. There is a small fee required to cover the cost of materials in the toy workshop, but all other activities are free.
