Celebrate an Old Fashioned Christmas at Historic Lindley Farmhouse on Sunday, December 4th

PAOLI – The Orange County Historical Society will once again play host to an old-fashioned holiday event at the historic Lindley House in Paoli this coming Sunday, December 4th from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.

The dining room of the Historic Thomas Elwood Lindley House is decorated for an old-fashioned Christmas.

The nearly 170-year-old farmhouse will be decorated downstairs in part to reflect a simple 1860s Christmas past and will be open for informal touring. OCHS President Robert Henderson said volunteers will be on hand to share information related to the house and its history.

The musical group “Wildflowers & Weeds” will perform period music in the front parlor of the house that afternoon as well. 

Hot Cider and cookies will be served in the kitchen area.

No admission will be charged; however, donations will be accepted to help maintain the historic home site.

Guests are asked to enter the house at the front door. Tours on Sunday will be self-guided in part, so visitors may arrive anytime between the hours of 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. and take as much or as little time as desired to explore the furnished historic house. Several rooms have recently been refurbished with period-like wall covering and window dressing.

The Lindley House

The house was the home of Thomas Elwood Lindley, an early Orange County settler, and is located just off Hwy. 150 West on Willow Creek Rd. in Paoli.
