Holiday Tour of the Beall-Dawson House & a Vegan Thai Dinner

Join us for a holiday tour of the historic Beall-Dawson House and Stone Street Museum. This year’s holiday exhibit is based on the 1860s, a decade in which the ‘traditional’ American Christmas was beginning to take shape. We will learn how the Civil War affected the holiday’s celebration, and specifically how free and enslaved women who lived there may have celebrated the Christmas in 1862.

We will also visit with Dr. Edward E. Stonestreet (as portrayed by MCHS interpretive docent Clarence Hickey) as he holds his regular office hours.

The tour will start on time at 2:30, so please be prompt. Please note that it is possible that our group will be divided into two, but the two buildings are very close together, and both groups will take the tour and visit with Dr. Stonestreet.

Admission to both museums: $5:00 adults, $3.00 seniors

After the tour we will meet and walk about 15 minutes to the Rockville Town Center to enjoy an early vegan dinner at the Thai Pavillion.

We will ask for separate checks, but it is not always possible for the restaurant to accommodate this request. Please come prepared to cover the cost of your dinner, tax, and tip.

    Would I be right in presuming the restaurant is NOT cheap? They don't give prices on their menus, which isn't a good sign..
