Visit Acorn Hall’s Annual Christmas Celebration

2017-12-08_13-17-57via Patch – At Acorn Hall, the trees are trimmed and the table elegantly set, ready for holiday guests to arrive. But before they do, members of the community are invited to visit the Morris County Historical Society‘s Italianate mansion to enjoy its festive décor.

The decorated, upside-down Christmas tree in the dining room not only is a traditional centerpiece of Acorn Hall’s holiday décor, but this year is a tribute to and celebration of the lives of the late Bill and Jean Watson. Mrs. Watson was the first MCHS Executive Director, from 1980 until her retirement in 1996, and was the first to recreate the Victorian custom of displaying a Christmas tree in this unusual way.

Acorn Hall’s annual Christmas Celebration will be on view now through January 7, 2018. Located at 68 Lafayette Ave., Acorn Hall is open Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11 am-4 pm, and Sundays, 1-4 pm, and by appointment. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for students, and is free for children under 12 and MCHS members.
