Welcome to Christmas at the Bonine House 2016 Slide Show
After checking out the Carriage House and greeting Santa, we enter the house on a very snowy day.
The first room is the cozy kitchen.
From there we enter the dining room set up for a Victorian holiday meal.
Next to the dining room is the elegant lady's bathroom.
The living room continues the Victorian theme and provides a scene for Christmas music performances.
In the parlor, Santa, Mrs. Claus and one of their elves entertain children of all ages.
We go out to the hall and up the stairs past the portraits of James and Sarah Bonine and tower entrance featuring original Bonine furniture.
The library is the first room we visit upstairs. It, too, is decorated for Christmas.
The UGRR Room describes the role of Cass County in the underground railroad in the 1800's.
The Bonine Room is beautifully decorated with the Bonine family furniture we were recently given.
One of the small bedrooms upstairs holds a creche
Another is decorated as a nursery.
The third is a little girl's room.
The upstairs bathroom is decorated in a snowman theme.
The tower is decorated all the way to the top and many guests go all the way up!
Our final stop in the house is the Bonine House office where many guests purchased Bonine House theme cards and gifts.
Thank You for visiting!
Thank you to our photographers, Cindy Yawkey and Wayne Falda and all the members who decorated the rooms.
