Christmas at The Van Horn Mansion

Christmas is a favorite time of year for many of our volunteers! Thanks to their efforts, the Van Horn Mansion features a growing collection of beautiful antique decorations and old-style displays.

Decoration Donations

The Newfane Historical Society welcomes additions to our Christmas displays. Items must be in good condition and created prior to 1950. We also accept financial contributions to help us grow our and preserve our collection. Please contact
