Christmas Events 2008

This year the Tyrconnell Heritage Society was pleased to provide a stop on the Dutton Dunwich Christmas Tour of Homes. The tour was held November 29th and 30th. The tour was a great success raising funds to aid in the renovation of the Dutton Medical Center. Guests who toured the Backus-Page House were treated to an 1850’s Christmas. The final event for the 2008 season was held on the following Saturday December 6th. This annual event featured a proper Talbot Settlement dinner served by candle light and the warm glow of firelight in the Backus-Page House Museum. A small sampling of this year’s menu included a selection of root vegetables, duck, venison and a Christmas pudding with hard sauce. The weather was frightful but company and fine food made the evening a joy.
