Soup & Stroll

Peters Creek Historical Society’s seventh annual “Candlelight Soup and Stroll” takes place at the Wright House Museum noon-5 p.m. Dec. 8.

As a special bonus this year, guests will also be able to visit Wright’s U.M. Church (across the street), part of the historic corridor also, to enjoy their decorations and nativities from around the world.

Visitors will dine by candlelight on a variety of homemade soups, breads and desserts in one of several of the museum’s “greened” display rooms. T

Takeout food will also be available. Admission tickets at door only. For more information, call 724-941-5710 or visit
