2015 Holiday Open House

Dec 3, 2015

The Benjamin Long Homestead
Tonawanda, New York
Wednesday, December 9, 2015
7 to 9 PM

In lieu of our traditional church holiday visit, members and guests are invited to an open house at the Benjamin Long Homestead on Wednesday, December 9, from 7 to 9 PM. Take this opportunity to experience the ambiance of the season in this lovely 1829 home graciously decorated by the members of the Garden Club of the Tonawandas. While the Homestead is always beautiful, it is especially so during the holidays when enhanced by the soft light of the electrified oil lamps in each room. This is also an opportunity to see the latest donations to the Homestead's décor – Clara's cabinet in the second floor girls' bedroom and the hot water urn on the petticoat table in the dining room. Docents will be available to discuss the history of the house and its contents, or attendees may simply wander through the rooms imagining how, more than a century and a half ago, the Benjamin and Mary Long family would have commemorated the birth of Christ. Light refreshments will be provided by generous Society members. Limited parking is available under the Delaware Street Bridge.

Please join us as we make merry in this unique setting.
