The James K. Polk Memorial Association and CASA of Maury County invite the public to Christmas at the Polk, two nights of festive celebration with historic flair.  The event will be held on the Polk Home grounds from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. on December 7 and 14. 

Guests will enjoy holiday lights throughout the gardens, caroling and period music performances, crafts, candlelight house tours, festive refreshments, and an 1800s Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Entry will be free.  Photos with Santa will be offered for a suggested donation of $10.  The original exhibition "A Right Happy Christmas": Holidays in the Polks' Era at Polk Presidential Hall will be open during the event.

All donations will be evenly shared by the nonprofit organizations CASA of Maury County (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children) and the James K. Polk Memorial Association. Come celebrate the season with us!
