Christmas in July is an annual event to make history come alive in Sussex County at the Elias Van Bunschooten Museum, a little know treasure in Sussex County! This event is an annual “open house” and a fund raiser to help maintain the museum. Listed on both the State and National Registers, this site is a wonderful example of a Dutch Colonial style home circa 1787, filled with original pieces from the Van Bunschooten and Cooper families, as well as many items of local historical interest including a Charleville musket carried in the American Revolutionary War.
