Come and see how Hague celebrates the holidays. Sponsored by the Westmoreland County Museum in Montross and Murphy’s Seed in Mt. Holly, the annual “Holiday House Tour,” scheduled for Sunday Dec. 8 from 3 PM until 6PM, will feature Hague this year. Houses- decorated for the Holidays- will get you in the spirit to start your own decorating, shopping and celebrating with family and friends!

Tickets can be purchased at the Westmoreland County Museum in Montross every day, except Sunday, from 10 AM-4 PM, and at Murphy’s Seed in Mt.
