The Chestnut Street Log House, overseen by the Historic Preservation Trust of Lebanon County, will be open Sunday, Nov. 26, for a holiday celebration.

The annual Yuletide gathering will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. at the historic log house, at 1110 Chestnut St., Lebanon.

The house, built in the 1760s or ’70s, dates back to a time when the area was known as Steitztown. Although slated for demolition in the mid-1970s, the house was preserved by City Council and given into the care of the Historic Preservation Trust. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
