Get in the holiday spirit at the Baytown Historical Preservation Association’s 11th annual Christmas Past and Present. The 1894 one-room Wooster Common School District No. 38 and 1910 Brown-McKay Farmhouse are adorned with period decorations and open for tours. Santa Claus is waiting in the post-and-beam barn for the children to tell him their wish list, and Miss Bobbie is reading a Christmas story in the 1910 John C. Sjolander house. Children activities include making a tin-punched ornament they can take home to hang on their Christmas tree.
