Berlin Historical Society Museum, 305 Main St., has set its annual Holiday Fair for Friday, Nov. 30, 5 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 1, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free event is a favorite tradition for many who return every December to experience the museum decorated in a new theme.
Celebrate the season and the sense of place we remember here in Berlin.
This year's inspiration is Dylan Thomas's narrative, “A Child's Christmas in Wales.” While the poet's memoir of snowball mischief, skating on thin ponds, visiting relatives, anticipating presents and good things to eat is universal, a visit to the museum is sure to evoke nostalgia for what the holidays were like while growing up in the Berlin area.
Although the theme changes from year to year, the historical society will continue the tradition of baking cookies and assembling them in white gift boxes.
The cookies and other confections for sale are spread in a dazzling display on a center table downstairs.
In addition, we have the new “It's BER-lin, not Ber-LIN” and Yankee Peddler image canvas bags and shot glasses, iconic Anthora design ceramic cups, town crockery, books, birdhouses, potted paper-whites, Berlin-themed DVDs, pet treats, holiday decorations, vintage treasures, raffle baskets, and more. Purchases help support the historical society’s mission to preserve and share Berlin's history.
Upstairs, visitors will view exhibits and decorations while enjoying refreshments and live music. There is a lift elevator for those who need assistance.
