By special arrangement, Santa Claus makes an early appearance in the newly refinished 1818 courthouse. Gerry Milnes (left) contributes fiddle music before the Christmas tree.
The women of the Beverly Presbyterian church (right) offered a warming and festive holiday dinner to a packed house. Santa appears to be loosening his belt, below. (Notice the new coverlet in the background, on sale HERE.
Bright sun belied a chilly day, but participants put on their coats to talk to local blacksmiths (above, left) and a costumed member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, collecting for charity (above, right)
The Bosworth Store (above) is the site of the Randolph County Historical Society's popular Museum.
Caught in a rare quiet moment (left) the Museum offers visitors a delightfully bewildering profusion of local artifacts and memorabilia. During this Saturday, the Museum was more usually thronged with the curious (above).
Another embarrassment of riches is the interior of the Goff House, site of a weaving and textile studio as well as a major collection of antiques of all types. During the holiday season, the Goff House is decorated in the traditional manner.
The Beverly I.O.O.F. (International Order of Odd Fellows) hall offered Old Fashioned Christmas goers a sneak peek at an upcoming shop that will sell specialty and antique clothing.
