SANTA HEIM HISTORY WALKING TOUR
Santa Heim, Merrieland: Savage’s Year-Round Christmas Village
Sundays, November 28 and December 19, 12 - 1:30 pm
Join us for this walking tour highlighting the Santa Heim years of Savage Mill and the surrounding community. From 1948-1951, the former cotton mill and the surrounding town were transformed by Harry Heim, a Baltimore businessman, into a year-round Christmas village. Highlights of the tour will include the Bollman Truss Bridge, a railroad spur that brought tens of thousands of people to the town; Carroll Baldwin Hall, the town community center turned toy store; houses and businesses in town that played a role; and the over-the-top entertainment inside the Mill’s New Weave building. The tour will end at a display of authentic Santa Heim Christmas ornaments owned by a Savage resident and Savage Historical Society member who will share what she has learned about the years when Santa Heim produced ⅓ of the country’s hand-blown ornaments.
