Join us for a special reunion inspired by the return of little Hunter to the home of his grandmother Mary Alice Farrell in December 1914.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus will host 1914: A Holiday Homecoming featuring turn of the century games and crafts, model train sets, live music performed by local children's choirs, stories told by the North 40 Storytellers Guild, mule driven wagon rides, and so much more!
Experience the Farmstead as the sun goes down when over 100 kerosene lanterns will be lit. Whether it has been days or years, come home to the Farmstead for this unique holiday celebration.

Volunteers will check in at the Foreman's House 50' to the right of the gate. There you will receive a "Heritage Farmstead Photographer" badge and any last minute instructions. At the end of the shift you will turn in the badge for the next shift. You may remain on the premise for more pictures if desired.
About 800 guests are expected. Therefore. a tripod is NOT an option. A monopod would be helpful for some of the evening pictures. The two most useful lenses are a 24-70 / 105 for most pictures and a 70 - 200 / 300 for some of the longer shots of the dignitaries. Don't forget the flash, fully charged batteries. and memory cards.
Your submitted images will be used Heritage Farmstead promotional purposes. The images should fit in a 1000 pixel box, color corrected, balanced, and ready to print. Your contact information must be in the IPTC metadata in the event a larger image is required for print.
These images can also be used in our December 10th review.
drop box will be provided for image submission at a later date.
