This Holiday Season, The Historic Odessa Foundation will transform its National Historic Landmark Corbit-Sharp House (built in 1774) into scenes from the classic children's novel, The Secret Garden, written by English novelist and playwright Frances Hodson Burnett. In addition to the Corbit-Sharp House, all of the Historic Houses of Odessa museum properties will be open and on full festive display for the holiday season. This year's Storybook Trees exhibit features more than 30 trees decorated by local families, schools, and organizations showcasing books and works of children's literature in the Wilson-Warner House (built in 1769).
