Choose from a variety of events including open hearth cooking, an inside look at a ‘Whitehouse Christmas,’ a candlelight tour of the Southern Trilogy historic homes or a 1940’s “live broadcast” of It’s a Wonderful Life from our Roswell Presents Friday Nights Live series at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center!
