Canceled: In Heavenly Peace: Bentonville Christmas Open House


We are deeply saddened to announce our Christmas Open House scheduled for Saturday December 2nd is CANCELED due to forecasted rain. As this is a mostly outdoor event, we will be unable to make the high quality program our visitors deserve.


Experience the Harper House as a family residence, not as a Civil War field hospital. This holiday season, you are invited to tour the home of John and Amy Harper as it may have appeared after the conclusion of the Civil War. Come enjoy the beauty of a 19th century Christmas aglow with candlelight. Also enjoy period refreshments in the kitchen, festive music by a warm campfire, and a ride on the Bentonville Holiday wagon. You can also paint your own ornament to take home! Do not miss your chance to experience Christmas by candlelight at Bentonville Battlefield! 

$5 admission for adults, FREE for kids 8 and under!
