2017 Holiday Open House

The Officers and Directors of the Rowley Historical Society extend a heartfelt invitation to join us as we start the holiday season with our Annual Holiday Open House Gala.

Knowing that our Puritan forebearers would never celebrate Christmas — in fact could have been arrested for doing so — we work with the understanding that the house eventually saw Christmas joy as a residence well into the 19th century, when Christmas and Christmas traditions came back into vogue. So, we have decorated the Platts- Bradstreet House and Barn in Christmas finery and invite the public to join us to celebrate the season. We hope you will stop by for a tour of the museum property and some light refreshments. As a special treat, on Saturday afternoon the LOCA Flute Ensemble from Beverly will entertain us with seasonal music.

This year our theme is Christmas Trees, and we have on display a variety of tree styles from the collections of our Board of Directors. As we do each year, we have invited the Second Grade classes from Pine Grove School to come and visit on Monday, Nov. 27th and to decorate the tree in the barn. Of course you will want to be certain to check that out.

It should be fun – it should be festive! And it’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit.  Mark your calendars – we look forward to seeing you again.
