Newland House Christmas Tree - Newland House Museum Huntington Beach

Simple Victorian decorations grace the Christmas tree in a manner families might have enjoyed during the turn of the 20th century. Crocheted ornaments, little dollies and a wrap of red ribbon make this tree look so gracious. It does include modern electrical Christmas lights that would not have been invented during that time. Such modifications are done purely for safety reasons, as candles once lit trees.


Experience a Victorian Christmas in California as you tour the late 1800's home of one of  Huntington Beach's settler families, the Newlands at the Newland House Museum. The home and its operations are funded by the city. Tours are offered weekly on Saturdays and Sundays to this two story home. There are some narrow staircases and no elevator, so climbing is required to see the entire house.


You can tell it is Christmas at Newland House when red bows drape from the signs outdoors to announce the season. For holiday celebrations, Newland House Museum offers several special events. And for your own special party, the Newland Barn behind the house is rented through the City of Huntington Beach Community Services Department.  Newland House 19820 Beach Blvd., Huntington Beach  CA  92648     (714) 962-5777


Where to stay: For visitors seeking a Huntington Beach or Orange County beach Christmas, one option is the Best Western Regency Inn on the same side of the street as the museum and within walking distance of a few blocks or less. See map below. Newland Center is located adjacent to "Bartlett Park" on the map.
