If you and your family are looking for something to do after a day of shopping and leftovers, the CH Moore Homestead and DeWitt County Museum hopes you'll keep them in mind.
 
Their annual Christmas season kick off events are a great way to usher in the holiday season and Director Joey Woolridge says it all starts with a visit from Santa that provides a great photo-opp and then the Homestead opens up for their first of the season candle light tours.
 
 
Woolridge says the candle light tours offer a very different feel to the museum that you just cannot get through the year. Additionally, the ladies of their board decorate the various rooms with a different theme.
 
 
The theme for this year's candle light tours is Golden Memories. Woolridge indicates it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the DeWitt County Museum Association.
 
 
Also this year, Woolridge has prepared a special exhibit thanks to DeWitt County. The old County Courthouse's time capsule was donated to the Homestead and Woolridge has pulled the items from it and has a display with information surrounding those artifacts.
