Holiday Open House

The Groton History Center invites all our neighbors, friends and first time visitors to the Holiday Open House at the Governor George Boutwell House on Sunday, December 11th, from 2-4 pm. We are so excited by the wonderful changes to this historic 1851 home. Rooms are painted in striking colors, new wallpaper has been hung, and period lighting and carpeting installed. The furniture has been restored and polished and along with our paintings, rearranged to make the house a new experience

This event will be our traditional Holiday Open House with homemade cookies and hot spiced cider. The Groton Garden Club will provide arrangements to enhance the beauty of the season. Music by Indian Hill students will be played as you stroll the rooms. See our antique sampler collection. Visit the President Ulysses S. Grant bedroom and Governor Boutwell’s office on the second floor, which has not been on view for several years.

The Groton History Center is so grateful to the volunteers, members and generous benefactors, who have made this renovation possible. Please stop by and see a part of Groton’s history in living color.
