Bring the whole family to the Western Maryland Railway Station at Canal Place (13 Canal Street) on Saturday, December 10 from 1 – 5 pm and enjoy a free Holiday Open House.

Explore our historic train station filled with music, trees, and decorations. Bring the kids for a whimsical afternoon with a very merry Santa Claus. Children will be able to get photos with jolly ol’ Saint Nick, color an ornament, or savor hot chocolate and munch on holiday cookies.

While at the station, take time to explore the Visitor Center & C&O Canal Exhibit on the ground floor. This interactive museum allows guests to pass through a model of the Paw Paw Tunnel and step back into the heyday of the canal. Awaiting you is a life size section of a canal boat. View exhibits on the canal’s construction, cargo, mules, locks, and crew.

Nothing signals the start of the season quite like bringing home a fresh cut tree that fills your home with the festive scent of pine. The Shops at Canal Place are selling fresh-cut locally-sourced trees that would be a perfect addition to your home. Browse the Shops at Canal Place for unique gifts for that special someone on your list.

More information about Canal Place can be found at www.canalplace.org. The event is presented by the Canal Place Preservation & Development Authority in partnership with the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad and Get Out & Play Outfitters.
