Elsah Holiday Walk scheduled Dec. 4

ELSAH- The Elsah Holiday Walk is scheduled for noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4.

Village shops, homes, street lamps and bridges in Elsah will be decorated for the season. There will be carolers, music concerts inside the two village churches and a stone fire pit as part of the free festivities. Reserve a free ticket at www.historicelsah.org or pick one up Dec. 4 at the Elsah Civic Center, located at 51 Mill St. Donations are welcome.

The Historic Elsah Foundation had to cancel its annual December fund raiser, Elsah’s Home for the Holidays House Tour, due to concerns over the on-going pandemic. Hoping to contribute in some way to the holiday spirit in the village, HEF decided to offer the outdoor event, the Elsah Holiday Walk.

The event will include visits inside four of Elsah’s historic buildings: the two-room school house, Farley’s Music Hall, the Elsah Museum and the Elsah Methodist Church. Hosts will be at each building sharing historic information. Elsah’s unique shops will also be open, serving cookies and other treats. Masks will be required indoors. 

Carolers will roam the streets and holiday music will be performed inside the two Elsah churches. 
 
For 50 years, Historic Elsah Foundation has played an important role to help preserve the village’s historic significance and picturesque beauty.  HEF is a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to the enhancement and preservation of Elsah’s homes, buildings, architecture, culture and environment.  Proceeds from fundraisers, like the home tour which was cancelled this year, greatly support the work of HEF.  Please consider making a donation to Historic Elsah Foundation.  Donations of any size will be gratefully accepted at www.historicelsah.org, or in-person on the day of the Holiday Walk.  

Donations will be accepted online at www.historicelsah.org, or in-person on the day of the event.
