Join us on Thursday December 7th between 5:00PM to 8:00PM for a cup of mulled cider, cookies, and an evening of holiday music and cheer as we celebrate the season around our 1826 Chickering box grand piano!
This piano was part of the Emerson household when they lived in Heath, Massachusetts, came with them to Amherst in 1846 and made its way to this house when they
moved here in January 1853–more than 160 years later we still have it to accompany our voices raised in song.
This is your last chance to get a look at our Sweetser Family Portrait and ‘So What? Who Cares? Why Bother?” exhibits before they’re packed away for good! The museum closes for the year December 9th, so let’s send off another year of Amherst history in style!
Seasonal refreshments will be served.
