A Historic Traditionfor the Holidays

Santa's House is a Belleville IL Area Tradition. Since 1964

Santa's House is a decades long holiday tradition dating back to 1964 when it replaced its much smaller predecessor. For years families have been coming with their children to visit Santa in his Belleville house and take home a photo keepsake. We receive visitors from the entire metro area and we routinely receive visitors from all over the world including Germany, England, Japan, Israeli, Ukraine and many more. Santa's House has been featured in many news articles, television news segments and once had a photo mention on a national daytime talk show. Santa's House is currently owned and operated by the Optimist Club of Belleville and supported by volunteers. The Optimist Club of Belleville  is a community civic organization with deep roots in Belleville who support and promote the well being of youth in our community.

"My parents used to take me to the Santa House when I was a baby and now I take my kids. It's become a great family tradition. I love seeing my daughter tell Santa what she would like for Christmas and making sure we bake his favorite cookies." - Dawn
