Watchman Tell Us Of The Night

Event Details

Every December, hundreds of residents of Harrisonburg City and the surrounding areas make “A Heritage Christmas” a part of their Christmas traditions. Unlike previous years, however, “A Heritage Christmas” this year will feature a dramatized tour titled “Watchman Tell Us of the Night”!
In “Watchman Tell Us of the Night,” visitors will progress through four different buildings on our campus, each with a scene that brings to life what Christmas Eve in 1864 might have been like for Brethren and Mennonites in the Shenandoah Valley. Each scene features different characters who struggle to make sense of the “Burning” that took place only months before, and who grapple with what it means to live as followers of Jesus in a particularly trying time.
Watchman Tell Us of the Night is written by Liz Beachy Hansen, who also wrote the script for Jordan’s Stormy Banks, a play commissioned by the Heritage Center in 2002. These special tours will take place on December 17 and 18, from 4-7 pm each evening. Tours will begin every 15 minutes, with a maximum of 10 persons per group.
Online registration is free, but donations will be taken at the event; our suggested donation is $10 per adult, $5 per student, and children 5 and under free. All proceeds will support the Brethren & Mennonite Heritage Center.
