(ORANGE, TX) – The W.H. Stark House is hosting a Stark Family Christmas Open House on Saturday, December 17, 2022, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Timed tickets are available upon arrival at the Carriage House (times may not be booked in advance). The Open House features a walk-through of the First & Second Floors of The W.H. Stark House, decked out for the holiday season. Groups with children under the age of 6 or with limited mobility will have access to the first floor only. The House is not wheelchair, walker, or stroller accessible and still requires climbing steps up to the porch.
The House will feature festive tableware and other holiday decorations highlighting an intimate family Christmas. The event also features a variety of themed activities for all ages in the Carriage House, including photo-ops, a hot cocoa bar, and more. Participants are encouraged to help those in need this holiday season by bringing canned goods and non-perishable items to benefit the SETX Food Bank. Free parking is available in the Lutcher Theater parking lot across from the Carriage House entrance located at 610 Main Avenue, Orange, TX 77630.
This Stark Family Christmas Open House is part of a new operation model launched in 2022 focused on events and programs. Stand alone tours of The W.H. Stark House are no longer available. Instead, the community can choose from a rotation of unique and quality experiences available throughout the year. Many of these experiences include an opportunity to see the inside of the House. This model is designed to actively engage both targeted and general audiences in different aspects of the family’s story and the House’s history.
