Victorian Christmas at the Historic Courthouse

Experience a St. Croix Valley tradition, the 23rd Annual Victorian Christmas! Built in 1870, the Washington County Historic Courthouse is the oldest standing courthouse in Minnesota. The Victorian Christmas event was established to raise funds for preserving this historic monument, which now serves as a premier destination for history programming and public/private special events. Cheers!
