Dashing Through The Snow
It's four days before Christmas in the tiny town of Tinsel, Texas, and a colorful parade of eccentric guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn and deck the halls with holiday hilarity. But a spur-of-the-moment Christmas Eve wedding that brings together the fabulous Futrelle sisters: ”Honey Raye, Twink, Frankie and Rhonda Lynn; and their best friend, Raynerd, takes a surprising and delightful turn that leads to a laugh-'til-your-sides-ache climax, changing all their lives forever. You'll swear this family-friendly Christmas comedy is more fun than a joyride in a one-horse open sleigh!

Weyerhaeuser Mansion
Known as the Pine Tree Bachelors, Charles A. Weyerhaeuser and Richard "Drew" Musser came to Little Falls in 1891. These young men managed the Pine Tree Lumber company. The Weyerhaeuser mansion was built shortly before Charles Weyerhaeuser married Frances Maud Moon in 1998. Designed by Clarence H. Johnston, the most significant architectural figure in Minnesota, the houses were built in the shingle style, constructed simultaneously in 1898 by A.D. Harrison. The Weyerhaeusers occupied their home at Linden Hill from 1899-1920. When the Pine Tree Lumber company closed, they left Little Falls to pursue other lumber business interests in St. Paul. Charles sold his house to Drew Musser for "a nickel and a handshake." Laura Jane Musser, youngest daughter of Drew and Sarah Musser, lived in the Weyerhaeuser home from approximately 1957 until her death in 1989. At the time of her death, Laura Jane bequeathed both of the houses, 9.5 acres of land and all the Musser family belongings to the Laura Jane Musser Fund who in turn donated it to the City of Little Falls. The homes are currently managed by a local nonprofits, The Friends of Linden Hill, Inc.
