SAVE THE DATE – The Elsah Holiday Walk – December 4th, 12:00 – 4:00
Historic Elsah Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement and preservation of Elsah’s homes, buildings, architecture, culture, and environment, had to cancel its annual Home for the Holidays House Tour again this year due to the ongoing pandemic. Hoping to contribute to the holiday spirit in the village, HEF decided to offer this FREE event – the Elsah Holiday Walk. Although there will be no homes open this year, the Holiday Walk includes visits inside four of Elsah’s historic buildings – the two-room schoolhouse, Farley’s Music Hall, the Elsah Museum, and the Elsah Methodist Church – with a host at each building sharing historic information. The village’s unique shops will also be open, along with our two bed & breakfast inns serving cookies and other treats, while carolers roam the streets, and holiday music is performed at Elsah’s two churches. **Masks will be required inside the buildings. Free tickets for the Holiday Walk may be reserved at www.historicelsah.org, or picked up on the day of the event at the Elsah Civic Center, 51 Mill Street.
Since 1971, Historic Elsah Foundation has played an important role to help preserve the village’s historic significance and picturesque beauty. Fundraisers, like the House Tour, which was canceled this year, help support the work of the Foundation. Please consider making a donation to HEF. Donations of any size will be gratefully accepted at www.historicelsah.org, or in-person on the day of the Holiday Walk.
