Beaverton students learn about a pioneer Christmas

Students in Beaverton recently got a glimpse of what Christmas celebrations entailed for the area’s settlers.

Volunteers from the Beaverton-Thorah-Eldon Historical Society welcomed students from Thorah Central, Holy Family and Beaverton P.S. for a tour of the log cabin, complete with a holiday story by candlelight.

The young visitors were also treated to cookies and a warm glass of apple cider before settling in to make pomanders.
