Gilded Age holiday traditions will come alive as Mrs. Williams and her staff share cookie recipes, reveal the latest 19th century holiday fashions, and explain holiday customs celebrated in Chicago. Look for them as you visit the Front Parlor, Dining Room, Sewing Room, and other rooms in the house.
