Supporters of the Gibson House Museum are invited to ring in the holiday season at the Gibson House Christmas Gala, from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, at the historic Lowe-Hohenwarter home, 458 First St. in Woodland.

The home was built in 1890 and had several owners prior to the Hohenwarters, who purchased it in 1998. The Queen Anne-style house has a 48-foot tower with a bell-shaped roof, “wave” shingles and many other unusual architectural details both outside and inside. It promises to be a festive holiday setting for the gala.

The fundraiser will feature an auction of decorated trees, wreaths, centerpieces, ornaments and gift baskets created by local crafters and decorators. There will be holiday music, hors d’oeuvres and local wine poured by Route 3.

Tickets are $35 per person, available at The Gifted Penguin, 716A Main St.; at the Gibson House, 512 Gibson Road, open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays; or from Meg Stallard at 530-666-0154.

Proceeds from the auction benefit the Gibson House Museum’s educational programs, which bring more than 1,200 Yolo County students to the historic Victorian home each year. For more information, call the Gibson House at 530-666-1045.
