Elkhart Historical Society

The Elkhart Historical Society is delighted to announce the upcoming Christmas Candlelight Services at the Historic Chapel on Elkhart Hill, December 3, 2022.  This year’s exceptionally talented cast, Springfield’s Wild Columbine, M. C’s Jay and Megan Drake from Lacon, Celista and Ken Reese, from Elkhart, and Organist Marcy Brooks, from Greeneville TN, will deliver music, stories, vocals, and art, in a unique blend guaranteed to add new dimensions to your holidays. The distinctive artwork created by Celista Reese at each service, will then be available with a silent auction bid at the end of each service. Four services are offered at 2 p.m., 4p.m. 5:30 p.m., and 8 p.m., and must be reserved starting on November 3 by calling 217 947 2238 between 8a -7p.

Prior to calling, please go to the website: elkharthistoricalsociety.org  for the downloadable reservation forms with all the service and menu information times and prices.

Combining the service with a delicious holiday meal with all the trimmings at Horsefeathers Wild Hare Café, before or after the service, can create a lasting memory with friends or family. Please let us help book the meal option when you reserve your service to complete your evening.

The Elkhart Historical Society membership information is also included as our dues for the 2023 year are now due and timed perfectly with the release of the 2023 calendar. A regular family or single membership is $25 and a Senior Citizen family or single is $20. A calendar without membership is $25. A free calendar is given with each new or renewed membership. If you choose not to pay extra for shipping your calendar, calendars can be picked up at The Country Bumpkin located at 103 Governor Oglesby St. Please consider joining, if you are not already a member, as many new projects are in the pipeline for 2023, and with it many new ways to enjoy Elkhart and its history.

Any extra time between services and meals can always be spent exploring the quaint shops in the business district of Elkhart and be sure to visit on November 19 between 9a-5p for our annual Elkhart Village Christmas Open House, where special gifts, tasty treats and warm drinks are offered.
