Holiday Wassail Party - Sunday, November 24, 2013
Gustaf Anderson House in Lindstrom, Minnesota
A wassail party is a traditional holiday gathering intended to
express the wish that host and guests should have a hearty,
healthy and happy life. Join us for some Christmas treats and
a sample of wassail, hot spiced apple cider, tea or coffee!
Annual Meeting and Program—4 pm
The call of “Wassail” (Be in Good Health) elicits the response
“Drink Hail” (Drink in Health). It is in fact the moment of this
earnest “blessing” that is the central focus. A wassail party is
a terrific way for you to greet friends and neighbors and get
acquainted with our historical society and it’s members. This
event is free and open to the public!
Christmas at the Folsom and Anderson homes!

The Chisago County Historical Society has been collecting
and sharing stories and artifacts about the county, located in
the east-central region of Minnesota, since the early 1900's.
Our first museum was the stone building built in 1920/21,
which still stands near the entrance to Interstate Park in
Taylors Falls, MN on the scenic St. Croix river.
Take a few minutes, browse the website and you will find all
sorts of great information! Learn about the CCHS museums
and exhibits, the Chisago County cemeteries, our research
library collections, county history, community links,
summer geocaching fun, and new items in our gift shop.
