Stocking Stuffer 2022 at the Centre Furnace Mansion

Proceeds from the Stocking Stuffer benefit the Centre County Historical Society to support its public programming and preservation efforts. By attending and doing some of your holiday shopping at the Stocking Stuffer, you support these efforts and, in turn, support the work of area artists and businesses. Whether a new or returning shopper, you will find that our vendors and Historical Society volunteers provide a variety of new and exciting items each year!

Just in time for the Stocking Stuffer, Centre Furnace Mansion’s dining room, grand front hall and parlors will be festively decorated for the holiday season through the generosity of some of Centre County’s finest florists: Avant Garden and Daniel Vaughn Designs. Boughs, berries, bulbs and bows will bedeck the Mansion’s exterior and Hearth Room contributed by our talented Centre Furnace Mansion Gardeners.

A listing of vendors and details can be viewed on the Centre County Historical Society’s website event page: centrehistory.org/events/stocking.
