1753 House Carol Sing Is Sunday In Williamstown
The holiday season in North Berkshire always brings a calendar full of annual events. Bazaars, craft fairs, concerts, Williamstown's Holiday Walk, community tree lightings and the relatively new tradition in North Adams of lighting a public menorah. Another long-standing event happens this Sunday.
The 46th annual 1753 House Carol Sing is scheduled for 7 P.M. at the landmark in Williamstown's Field Park. Deborah Burns will lead the a cappella singing beside a roaring blaze in the fireplace. Carol books and hot mulled cider will be provided and the event is free for all to attend.
According to the Williamstown Historical Museum's website, the structure built in 1953 is a faithful replica of the houses that were around in the town's beginnings in 1753, so it has no heat or electricity. Carolers on Sunday are encouraged to dress warmly and bring a light to see by.
The 1753 House is across from Williamstown's Milne Public Library at the intersection of Routes 2 and 7. Parking is available at the Library.
