Traditions and inspiration carry on at the Hormel Historic Home

Published 6:46 pm Friday, November 4, 2022

The Hormel Historic Home is inviting people to be inspired by their history and traditions.

The Home’s dedicated Christmas Crew has once again decorated every room differently than any year before. The group received help from staff and students at Nexus-Gerard Family Healing who volunteered to help with setting up Christmas throughout the mansion!

Endless hours go into planning, creating, and decorating to showcase George and Lillian Hormel’s home. In a press release, administration at the HHH said they know both George and Lillian would be so proud of how their home continues to welcome the community and provide inspiration to all during the Christmas season as well as year round through meaningful programming.

For 2022, old favorites have been brought back along with new experiences, that includes a dinner show.
