I spent some time taking pictures of this years Christmas decorations at the Williams House as they do change from year to year.

I’m not sure those early owners would have decorated to this extent, but certainly the charm and feel of this home and historic town are an enjoyable experience for today. We still have two rooms left for Christmas…so come on down and join us!
