The Glebe House Museum announces plans for ‘Holidays in the Hollow’

The holiday season offers each of us a chance to reminisce, connect with family and friends and find joy in our traditions. One of the most anticipated traditions in Woodbury has become the Glebe House Christmas Festival Open House.

Open House & Holiday Boutique will take place on Saturday, December 1 from 10AM to 3PM. New this year: The Museum will open its day with a Waterbury Symphony Orchestra Musical Readers presentation of the Nutcracker. (Sponsored by: TD Bank – Woodbury). During the open house the public may enjoy the beautiful decorations to purchase, along with gift items available in the Holiday Boutique, presented in the Cottage Annex.

Visitors will enjoy experiencing life in this Revolutionary War era house during the holidays re-enacted by adult and youth volunteers. The costumed docents will give first-person accounts of the Marshall family who lived at the “Glebe” from 1771-1786 and share stories about how the family prepared for the holiday season.

Admission is free for the day. Donations are gladly accepted. All proceeds from this weekend event will help support The Glebe House Museum & Gertrude Jekyll Garden. For more information please call the museum at 203-263-2855 / email at office@glebehousemuseum.org
