Riley Creek Christmas Tour @ Pandora, Ohio
Dec 10 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

The second annual Riley Creek Christmas Tour will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, including four stops along the Riley Creek near Pandora.

The first stop is the Bridenbaugh One-Room Schoolhouse located at 14022 Road 6. This building is on the National Register of Historic Places and will be decorated for a 19th century Christmas.

There will be refreshments and musical entertainment.

The next stop is the McCullough Log Cabin at 14503 Road 6, owned by Tom and Jane McCullough of Pandora. This 2½-story log home was originally built in 1860 and is furnished primarily with 19th century furniture from Putnam County. Tom’s blacksmith/gun shop and recently reconstructed single pen log barn will also be open.

Red Fox Cabin is a 1½-story log cabin built in 1853 by German immigrants and moved from West Virginia in 1995. Stop in, sit by a cozy fire and enjoy other refreshments. The cabin will be decorated with natural materials from The Quarry Farm Nature Preserve & Conservation Farm on which the cabin is located, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L.

Since 1850 when it was built by pioneers, Riley Creek United Methodist Church has provided an uplifting, peaceful place for worship. The church is located northwest of Pandora at the intersection of county roads M and 7L, across from Putman Aggregates.

There is no charge for this tour. Contact Peggy Bridenbaugh at 419-363-0075 for more information.
