Victorian Christmas Learn how holiday traditions have changed!  During the first 4 weekends in December, you’re invited to experience how Christmas was celebrated during the late 1800s  when you tour the 1873 C. C. Beekman House, located at 470 E. California Street in Jacksonville, Oregon,  and home to Jacksonville’s wealthiest pioneer family. Learn about the many cultures that contributed to the Christmas celebration we know.  Find the good luck German pickle ornament on the Christmas tree.  Sing a Christmas carol.  Steal a kiss under the mistletoe.  Hear about presents the Beekmans exchanged.  Sample one of Mrs. Beekman’s sugar cookies.  And visit Mrs. Beekman’s Christmas Bazaar for toys, crafts, collectibles, holiday items, and popular Victorian era gifts. Victorian costumed docents will be offering tours every 15 minutes between 11 am and 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday, December 2-3, 9-10, 16-17, and 23-24. The day after Christmas, known as “Boxing Day,” was a special day for sharing with those less fortunate, and on Tuesday, December 26, Historic Jacksonville will be offering special “Victorian Boxing Day” tours benefiting ACCESS. Victorian Christmas house tours are $5 for adults, $3 for children (6-12) and seniors (65+).  On “Boxing Day,” tour admission is $2 with a canned good donation to ACCESS.....
