People living in mid- to late-Victorian (1870-1901) and Edwardian (1901-1910) Texas enjoyed sending postcards. Folding greeting cards, while available, were not widely sent; early postcards were printed with artwork, an advertisement or left without a design on the front. Photos were not added to postcards until around 1900.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Moore Home! Docents and volunteers have been hard at work this week preparing for the annual Candlelight Tours, which has been a festive holiday favorite since 1977!
This year's theme is "To Grandmother's House We Go: A 1950s-era Moore Family Christmas." The Moore family actually did have grandchildren during the '50s, so the theme is quite spot-on with the home's history. Each room in the house is decorated with mid-century flair...we know you're going to love it!
That's it for the sneak peek...you'll have to come take a tour to see the rest of the house! Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 for kids. Join us on Friday from 6-8 p.m. or Saturday from 2-8 p.m. -- plus, if you come Saturday, you can also check out Miracle on Morton Street happening from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. just a couple of blocks over from the Museum!
See you this weekend!
