Newland House Christmas Handbell Choir

handbells on the lawn of the Newland House create a special holiday memory

Newland House Christmas  is a festive place and atmosphere that rings through the air. Handbell choirs often come to the Newland House to perform at a holiday reception for families and children. It is truly a memorable experience to stand outside in front of the house on the lush, grass lawn in December when the air takes on a slight chill. Dressed in red jackets and sweaters, the bell ringers perform Christmas and religious holiday favorite songs that are so unique, you wish the feeling would never end. Looking from the dark into the Victorian home all aglow with lights and trees, it is easy to long for a simpler time without cell phone, cell towers, desalination plants and the modern trappings that Newland family knew nothing about during the turn of the 20th century.

This family were some of the earliest modern-day residents of a town called Pacific City, and they helped shape the local economy with banks, transportation, the food their farm supplied and sold.  Be sure to visit the Newland House before Christmas to enjoy this once in lifetime experience!
