Shade, sun, history, playground, museum, pavilions, out away from the mudding crowd. This little Orange County Park has it all. Come in December and stop at the post office to mail your Christmas cards!

Fort Christmas Historical Park is a real hidden treasure. It is over a century of artifacts and buildings used in an era gone by. My husband and his brothers attended Nations School there and it has been relocated to this site. It's history is priceless, and my husband was over-joyed with being able to view this site.

We have been here several times and always just enjoy wandering around. During their various special occasions, they have much more to see and vendors set up little stores along with various guides and performers.
