Oranges were a special fruit for 18th and 19th century Americans, since they could only get them during the winter months. Some of those oranges were used to make pomanders, a spiced, scented ornament that decorated their homes and filled the house with a lovely aroma. Make your own pomander at King Manor, then visit the rest of the museum and enjoy our holiday decor!

Recommended for ages 3 and up, adults also welcome! Families and individuals only, no groups please.
