“Homestead Holidays of the Past”
Watch our new YouTube channel on Sunday, December 6th for the premiere of our latest video “Homestead Holidays of the Past.” In April 2021 we will celebrate 20 years of the Historic Haile Homestead being open to the public! The video takes you back in time to a selection of Homestead Holidays and Candlelight Visits of the past twenty years. Just go to www.youtube.com and search for “Historic Haile Homestead.” The video is free, but if you feel so inclined to make a donation, just go to our webpage at www.hailehomestead.org and click on the Donate button at the bottom of the page. We rely on the revenue from the Homestead Holidays and Candlelight Visits to cover operating expenses. Since we’ve had to cancel these in-person events and move to a virtual delivery (thanks to the pandemic), we especially appreciate your donations this year! Enjoy!
