The Cheney house predates Jerseyville and Jersey County and is the oldest home in the Jerseyville area. In addition to nearly a dozen beautifully decorated trees, the tour examines the history of popular Christmas traditions, such as wassailing, kissing under the mistletoe, and placing candles in windows.

Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased at the front door of the Cheney house the night of the tours.
