It’s one of the warmest, cheeriest places to be as the holiday season begins on December 2. Please join us for hot mulled cider and the sounds of live harp music in our beautifully decorated 1750 Elisha White House, commonly known as “Old Brick”. Refreshments will be served and the house will be open to the public, free of charge, from 1:00 to 5:00. When your toes begin to feel numb from the cold, you’ll know where to go. We’ve got a roaring fireplace!

CHS Visits the Little Red Schoolhouse

On August 28, a group of CHS board members toured the Little Red Schoolhouse on Cow Hill Road and made plans to help the Department of Public Works decide how to restore the interior so that residents can visit this historical gem. One hundred years ago, this property was the site for the town's annual 4th of July picnics. Wouldn't it be fun to revive that event? The teacups and china are ready and waiting in the cabinets.
