This year The William Cullen Bryant Homestead in Cummington is excited to be bringing back An Old-Fashioned Christmas at the Homestead! For two weekends in December, the house will be open to the public for a special holiday celebration! A part of this holiday tradition includes the decoration of the rooms by local community partners, businesses and neighbors.
We are seeking approximately 9 volunteers each time the house is open for this event to help as with refreshments, as greeters in our decorated rooms and with our pop up artisian gift shop. Volunteers can sign up for 12/3, 12/4, 12/10, 12/11 and 12:30-2:30pm, 2:30-4:30pm and/or 5:30-7:00PM (Saturdays).
Visitors can tour the festively decorated historic rooms and enjoy seasonal refreshments & cheer while browsing our holiday pop-up shop filled with local artisanal wares. Each weekend offers something different: from carolers to Santa Clause, poetry and Christmas tales! This program, as all program do, supports the conservation and protection work of the Trustees, a state-wide nonprofit organization protecting 116 properties in MA for their conservation and enjoyment by the public.
