Members Holiday Party

  • Museum of Old Newbury 98 High Street Newburyport, MA, 01950 United States (map)

Ring in the holiday season at the Cushing House!  On December 6 from 4-7pm, join us for food, drink, and merriment in our beautiful Federal period home.  During the holidays, the house glows with warmth and cheer, and festive decorations highlight the historic beauty of each room.  The annual Holiday Party gives members the special opportunity to view the decorations by candlelight and enjoy socializing with other HIST members and supporters.

Decorations provided by local garden clubs and designers, including the Newburyport Garden Club, West Newbury Garden Club, Newbury Garden Club, Newburyport Horticultural Society, Phyllis Orem and Judy Wilkinson, and Jean Moak.

Be sure to check out our holiday boutique for the perfect presents for everyone on your "nice" list.  We have jams and jellies, holiday ornaments, note cards, local history books, handmade wreaths and decorations, our recently published Cushing House Cooks cookbook, and much more!  The boutique will be open during the Holiday Party, as well as from 10am-4pm December 5-11.  Be sure to buy your raffle tickets to win a Gingerbread Cushing House.
