POSTPONED TO 12/18 Colonial Christmas
EDIT: POSTPONED TO SUNDAY 12/18, 12-4 DUE TO WEATHER.
The Tate House Museum is hosting a Colonial Christmas Open House on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18 from 12 to 4 PM (note new date of 12/18 due to weather) with Christmas-themed tours of Tate House from 12-3 PM. This event will feature docents sharing stories of colonial life around the holidays in the time of the Tate family.
This year the open house will encompass all of the rooms of the Tate House where docents clothed in 18th century attire will tell visitors about life in colonial times in a merchant class British colonial household. They will talk about some of the customs and traditions of the time around the holidays and how these customs may have differed from their Puritan neighbors. The special foods made for Christmas, New Years, and Twelfth Night celebrations will also be described.
Following your tour of the Tate House, cross the street to the Means House for some wassail, cookies, and music. This is also your opportunity to shop for unique holiday gifts in the gift shop with a 10% discount off your entire purchase.
Please join us for the sights, sounds, and tastes of a Colonial Christmas at the only pre-Revolutionary home in Greater Portland open to the public.
