Museums by Candlelight

Join us from noon until 5 p.m. as the Catoctin Furnace Historical Society welcomes visitors to the ca. 1810 Collier’s Log House in the Village of Catoctin Furnace.  The double log house, which is the linchpin of the largely intact colonial industrial village, was restored during the bicentennial era.  The double log house presents historical information about the early industry, lifeways, and foodways of Catoctin Furnace and northern Frederick County in an early nineteenth-century atmosphere.  Enjoy hot cider and baked goods from traditional village recipes.  Children can make a punched tin ornament.  Design and purchase the perfect holiday wreath with fresh greenery, holly, pine cones, ribbon and bows and all sorts of adornments.  Volunteers will make the wreath while you wait.
