HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE at the Keep Homestead Museum from 1:00-3:30pm on Sunday, December 1; 35 Ely Rd., Monson, MA. The annual event will feature the house decorated for the season, delicious refreshments and a holiday sing-a-long with Gay Paluch at the piano. Tour the museum and marvel at the items collected by the Keep family who lived there for over 150 years. There is furniture, silver and cut glass, collections of rocks, minerals and shells, quilts and other needlework done by the women of the family, along with the extensive button collection (the pride of the museum). Several of the second floor rooms are closed as items from the attic have been moved there, in preparation for insulating the attic. Still open is the Minister's Corner and the bedroom that Charles and Pearl Keep moved into on their wedding day in 1893 and that has the original wallpaper, carpet, furniture and the bill-of-sale for the furniture.
