2009 Season was - A walking tour through the historic town guided by lamplight bearing costumed docents/volunteers. Tour groups visit about thirteen vignette sites featuring historic Christmas traditions pertinent to various ethnic peoples of Columbia from 1859. This year's theme "Down but not Out" emphasizes the population of Columbia is decreasing due to the lack of easy gold pickings. However, the town is growing in social awareness by building a new brick school, making sure the town is protected against future devastating fires, and are becoming less prejudice against other ethnic groups. This was a wonderful way for you and yours to begin a joyous holiday season.
Tours last a little more than an hour and are handicap accessible.
Be prepared for cold weather and sometimes rain.
Refreshments are served at the end of the tour in the cozy warmth of the Eagle Cottage.
