Christmas Open House 2020

The public is invited to the Christmas Open House at the Historic Carter House on Sunday, December 6, 2020 and Sunday, December 13, 2020 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. both days.  This event is hosted by the Historic Carter House Society Inc. (HCHS) which is the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that manages the Carter House. Each room will be decorated in holiday décor from the past and the present.  Tours will be given so our guests will learn about the history of the plantation, the only plantation in Livingston Parish. In 1979, the Carter House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Carter House was built between 1817 and 1820 and has a rich and exciting history.

Santa Clause will be there to hear the children’s Christmas wishes. Enjoy a snack and a drink while taking in this beautiful house and its surrounding gardens.

Tickets will be sold at the door and will cost $5.00 for adults, with children under the age of 12 admitted free, as are HCHS members. Each ticket will be entered in a drawing for a door prize. The drawing will be held on December 13th after the tours are complete.

Memberships will be available at the Open House. Memberships help the Historic Carter House Society Inc. preserve this wonderful piece of history in Louisiana. Annual Memberships are $30.00/individual and $40.00/family. The proceeds from memberships and the open house will go toward restoration work to the Carter House.
