A Colonial Christmas at INOLA
During Christmas garlands of ivy, laurel and mistletoe grace the elegant colonial buildings of Inola. In the evening candles burn casting a glow on smiling faces. Decorations are simple and refined, yet elegant befitting a colonial Christmas.
The colonial style village was built in the 1980s and includes historic building replicas found in Williamsburg, Virginia.
At our grand opening on November 29, step back in time as you take a leisurely INOLA stroll. Tour the newly renovated Wetherburn’s Tavern, the original post office and barn, and experience the peace and tranquility of the historic chapel. Listen with wonder as the chapel bell rings on the hour!
We also welcome you to enjoy INOLA in our horse-drawn wagon. And take a spin on the ice at the INOLA ice skating rink!
Children will delight in visiting with Santa at the Wythe Mansion arbor – and storytelling with Mrs. Claus by the cozy Wetherburn fireplace.
At sunset, INOLA will dazzle as holiday lights twinkle throughout the village, including the illuminated maze!
Then join us at 7:00 p.m. in front of the Wythe Mansion for a spectacular Yule Log celebration!
Don’t forget to wear your walking shoes!
Entrance to the property is free.
Tickets will be sold for carriage rides, ice skating, food and beverages.
The INOLA Blue Ridge 2019 collectible ornament will also be available for purchase.
