Decking the halls of The Miller House

December 09, 2007|By JULIE E. GREENE

Toys, greens, gifts, carols and goodies such as gingerbread men are among Christmas traditions.

The holiday decorations at The Miller House in downtown Hagerstown center around these traditions.

Each Christmas season, Washington County garden clubs decorate various parts of the house, which is home to the Washington County Historical Society.

The garden clubs are Antietam, Crossroads, Fountain Head, Hagerstown, Potomac, and Town & Country.

The Miller House will be decorated for the holidays through Saturday, Dec. 29. The house is open 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays to Sundays, but will be closed Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Also on display are several dolls - of girls, boys and men - dating from the mid-1800s to about 1930.

Another exhibit entitled "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" displays late 19th- to early 20th-century nightwear and Christmas books.

Admission to the museum is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students, and free for ages 16 and younger.


The Miller House is at 135 W. Washington St. Call 301-797-8782.
