Did you know?

Did you know that during Christmas in Clear Spring the Trumpower sisters, Parcenia and Carolyn, gave a tour of their beautiful historic home in Clear Spring built around 1826, to about 200 guests.

The sisters call themselves the "Baldwin Sisters" - Miss Mamie and Miss Amy - from the Waltons TV series.

Jeffery Everitts greeted everyone at the door, along with Santa, Mr. Weaver and Santa's helper, Shawn Hilker. Friends browsed the parlor, living room, and the kitchen, where they found Denver Trumpower and Ida Trumpower Alton by the "ole" fireplace. The winding stairway to the upstairs was very exciting, as Denver had to rescue a few ladies, who were stuck in the stairway. The Trumpowers hope that everyone enjoyed the tour and would like to thank the Clear Spring Garden Club and all those who helped make Christmas in Clear Spring spectacular.

P.S. At the end of the evening, Santa came in for cookies and milk and then up the chimney he rose. They heard him exclaim as he rose out of sight, "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night."
