Holiday Displays at Promont 

2019s Victorian Splendor!

December 21 & 22, 2019


1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Saturday and Sunday – $5 donation requested

Each year, the elves at Promont create a special holiday wonderland. And this year, Promont is “Resplendent in silvers, golds, whites, and crystals, just as the Victorians would have loved, for Victorian Splendor!” 

The holiday decor displays at Promont are always a nod to the decorative arts used during the Victorian era.  The Victorians beautified their surroundings with lavish decorations – a representation of social class, etiquette, and their preference for the romantic and sentimental. 

Visitors to the Holiday Open House will enjoy:

  • Victorian Carolers entertaining on the veranda, portrayed by our local P.L.O.T.T. Performers
  • Impromptu discussion with costumed docents who will be available to answer questions about Promont
  • Lite bite refreshments provided by the GMAHS membership
  • An opportunity to shop Promonts refurbished Gift Shop filled with unique gifts, handcrafted holiday decor, and local history items






Make Promont part of your holidays this year!
