APPLETON –Visitors will be able to step into another era at the Town of Somerset Historical Society’s annual Victorian Christmas open house, from 1 to 4 p.m. next Sunday in the Babcock Cobblestone Museum, 7449 Lake Road. Admission is free.

The house will be decorated in Victorian fashion, complete with antique toys and model trains. Christmas music will be played throughout the afternoon on the antique pump organ and visitors will be invited to sing along.

And the timeless jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus, will be there to visit with the young and the young at heart.

In addition there will be biscuits baking in the beehive oven and fresh butter being churned. Guests will even be given a chance to push the plunger up and down to help churn the cream into butter.

There also will be horse-drawn wagon rides, hot chocolate, punch and cookies.
