JANESVILLE — The staff at the Rock County Historical Society have a few new things up their sleeves. The holiday tour of the Lincoln-Tallman House has changed format this year. Instead of the sit-down dinner of years past, the society will host a walk-through of the Lincoln-Tallman House. Enjoy the vintage decor ranging from the 1850s to the 1930s while sipping wine and whiskey.

Christmas With the Tallmans

On Saturday, Dec. 5, take a step back in time and enjoy a Victorian Christmas celebration with the caroling melodies of the Edgerton High School Chamber Singers. There will be a vintage sleigh parked outside that guests can sit in and take their own holiday-themed pictures. Listen to classic tales of Christmas past with Father Christmas and enjoy baked goodies and warm apple cider from RCHS volunteers. The Lincoln-Tallman House will be open from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets for adults are $5 and free for children under 5 years old.

Whiskey, Wine and Winter Cheer

On Sunday, Dec. 6, help the historical society illuminate the lights in the Lincoln-Tallman House with its Light the Way campaign while enjoying wine and whiskey pairings with hearty appetizers. It will be a casual come-and-go evening from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets cost $55 for RCHS members and $60 for the public.

Tickets for either evening are available online or at the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center, 426 N. Jackson St., Janesville.
