CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- It may be blustery outside, but the cozy Marshall Center School will warm your toes and hearts with holiday festivities, and we will party likes it’s 1899. The magical world of Victorian Christmas traditions comes alive in the historic one-room school at the University of Northern Iowa on Dec. 3.

The Friends of the UNI Museum invite you to celebrate the holidays in our historic schoolhouse. Spend your Sunday afternoon singing favorite Christmas carols, enjoy decorating (and eating) cookies, learning crafts to create vintage holiday ornaments and decorations, and enjoy the telling of a beloved Christmas story. Join in the yuletide festivities from 2 to 5 p.m., Sunday Dec. 3.

This is the fifth offering in the Friends of UNI Museum Rural Schoolhouse Speaker Series. All Speaker Series presentations are open to the public, and there is no admission fee. Free parking on campus is also available for this event.
