Where Past Meets Present

Help beautify the Outside of the Lincoln-Tallman House this Holiday Season!

Lincoln-Tallman House - Winter 2019

New in 2019, RCHS has been challenged to create a competition for exterior holiday lighting and décor. Individuals and businesses, here’s your chance to show your holiday spirit and creativity – while increasing your brand exposure!

All participants will be recognized on signage during the holiday tour season (November 29 – December 31). See the map below for available locations.


Reserve Your Spot Today

There is no cost to participate in the exterior lighting competition. Reserve your spot in the location list. For questions or more information, email Tim Maahs or call him at 608-756-4509 ext. 301. All exterior decorations must be lit; RCHS will provide access to power. Decorations must be in place by noon on Friday, Nov. 29, before Holiday Tours of the Lincoln-Tallman House begin!
