We invite our visitors to rediscover the stories of the Phillips House Museum during the winter season with the Phillips Favorites series. The tours, programs, and movies are staff picks that highlight what life was like on Chestnut Street in the early twentieth century and go beyond the regular house tour to share an even better story. Interested visitors can come for one or two programs or purchase a series that will allow them admission each weekend for the events. The general public is invited to join the series for $50 or come to individual events for $10 each. Historic New England members will be offered a steep discount for $20 for the series or $5 for individual events. All events will take place from 2:00-3:00 p.m. and will be offered on Saturdays from January 18-February 22, 2014. The series kicks off with the popular Winter Weekends program, featuring hot cocoa, cookies, and home movies showing the family enjoying ice skating, skiing, tobogganing, and other favorite winter fun. The weekend after will feature a Winter Wonderland walking tour of historic Chestnut Street. Take a weekend getaway for the first weekend in February with the Travel and the Phillips Family program which tells the story of family travel through photos, journals, and home movies. The Salem-So-Sweet weekend will feature a talk based on Love Letters of the Phillips Family and will look at romance and courtship through the generations. The Phillips' were lovers of games and February 15 will feature an afternoon of parlor games. The series will end with Celebrations in Salem and spring will be welcomed with home movies that feature local parades, parties, and the famed Chestnut Street Days.
