Victorian Christmas Celebration at The Oaks Children of all ages are invited to join Park Rangers at Tuskegee In- stitute National Historic Site to learn about Victorian Christmas customs. Saturday, December 18 at 10 a.m. the park will host a workshop for children to learn about classic or- naments that would have been made during the Victorian time pe- riod. The workshop will be held at the George Washington Carver Mu- seum where children will craft an ornament and then decorate a tree at the Oaks, the home of Booker T. Washington. The construction of the Oaks began in 1899 with the family mov- ing in around 1900 which is the end of the Victorian time perio4 (1901). The Oaks with its Queen Anne-style architecture has several features that make it representa- tive 'of the Victorian era. Introduction of indoor plumbing and electric lighting along with the typical interior decorating style of using dark wood, carpet and paint makes The Oaks a great example of a Victorian home. Tuskegee Institute National His- toric Site, which includes the George Washington Carver Mu- seum and The Oaks, is managed by the National Park Service. The Carver Museum is open daily from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tours of the Oaks are Thursday- Saturday at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tuskegee Institute National His- toric Site is the only national park located on an active college cam- pus.
