The Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum’s History of Christmas Tour

Journey with us to the past as we celebrate Christmas traditions at two of our historic houses.

The Isaac Stevens House will be decorated to depict the holiday celebrations of a middle-class household during the early to mid-1800s, when many of the Christmas traditions known today were adopted in New England.

At the Joseph Webb House visitors view decorations typical of the early 20th century, including Christmas trees, evergreen roping, fresh greens, fruit, and period ornaments.

Tours go out Tuesday-Saturday at 11, 1 and 3 and on Sunday at 1 and 3 beginning on December 1. (Museum will be closed on December 24, 25, 26, 31 and January 1 and 2)

Admission: $15 per adult; $12 per senior over 60, AAA member and active military; $6 per student and children (5-18), $30 per family (2 adults + children).
