Get into the old-time Christmas spirit with the annual Christmas open house at the historic Bryant House and McLendon Cabin. The Moore County Historical Association and Friends of the Bryant House host the event without admission charge so every Yule visitor can get a little taste of how early settlers celebrated Christmas. Decorations are based on old-timey materials and traditions, there will be refreshments, and live music. The McLendon cabin is the oldest dwelling remaining on its original site, where it was built in the 1760s. Next door on the same lot is the Bryant House, a bigger dwelling dating back to the 1820s. Along with decorations and refreshments, there is customarily an historical interpretation and tours. The cabin’s huge fireplace has been used for a roaring fire as a small but cozy island of Yule cheer and decorations.
