They dress this historic house up for Xmas, and sometimes have sleigh rides with horses for free. It's a quick visit, maybe 20 minutes, tiny little gift shop as well.

Great to watch the entertainers on the porch of Benares Historic House while you sit back in your lawn chair under the trees in total relaxation. Now there is a market as sell with honey, soaps, food vendors etc.
