In addition to the homes, your ticket will include entry to several historic buildings in Marietta. The Old Town Hall Museum will be open for visitors to check out its unique collection of historic Marietta and Lancaster County memorabilia.

The Union Meeting House will feature: Christmas music played by organist Ken Krause on the 1847 Knauff Pipe organ located in the gallery of the meeting house. 1972 Hurricane Agnes pictures will be on display courtesy of Marietta resident Steve Bailey. A “This Place Matters” display will be presented by the students of Elizabethtown college. This display will feature twelve different homes in Marietta.

First National Bank (housed in the historic bank building) will
host ticket sales, provide restrooms, and feature the Marietta
miniature home of 2022. The Marietta Community House will
host a Christmas Market in Studio 264 at the rear of the property.
