Greenwood INN Gingerbread
Inn on the Square – Uptown Greenwood
HIghlighting Greenwood’s unique history and design
Join us this holiday season for our first annual Greenwood Inn Gingerbread and enjoy a display of community participation, highlighting Greenwood and the surrounding areas, made of Gingerbread. It is our goal to encourage individuals and community groups and organizations to re-create, from gingerbread, homes/buildings/and landmarks in Greenwood.
HOW IT BEGAN – Four years ago when we first opened the hotel we knew that we needed a signature fundraising event. Jim McGuinness, owner and operator, has always loved Christmas and began building gingerbread houses with his boys when they were just children. We decided to incorporate this family memory into building new ones in Greenwood. With the help of the Bowers Rodgers Children’s Home, the Inn on the Square has continued to develop this event year after year.
In the past three years the event was limited to one gingerbread house on display made by McGuinness himself and the gingerbread building event for the children. Now, we invite you to join us in growing greater as we introduce “Greenwood Inn Gingerbread”.
