Holiday Happenings at the Glebe House
Let the Holidays Begin…
The Glebe House Museum announces plans for ‘Holidays in the Hollow’.
Woodbury - The holiday season offers each of us a chance to reminisce, connect with family and friends and find joy in our traditions. One of the most anticipated traditions in Woodbury has become the Glebe House Museum’s Holiday Gala and Christmas Festival Open House.
‘The Holidays in the Hollow’ Gala is slated for Friday, November 30th from 5:30 to 8:00 PM at The Glebe House, 49 Hollow Road in Woodbury. Guests will be treated to savory hors d’ oeuvres and an array of wines to toast the holidays complimented by the elegantly decorated museum. In this magical candlelit setting, the rooms of the museum will be beautifully decorated and brimming with good cheer. All of the one of a kind wreaths, swags and table top decorations will light up your holiday and be available for purchase. Guests will also have a wonderful opportunity to wrap up their Christmas gift list at the Silent Auction, where original art, gift baskets, silver, and other treasures will be found. The cost to attend this year’s event is $25 per person.
To continue the Holiday Festival, the Museum will hold its Open House & Holiday Boutique on Saturday, December 1 from 10AM to 3PM.

This program will bring to life the magic of the Nutcracker with the music of the violin. Children of all ages and their families are welcome to attend. Admission is free and families are welcome to explore the first floor of the museum.
During the open house the public may enjoy the beautiful decorations to purchase, along with gift items available in the Holiday Boutique, presented in the Cottage Annex. Visitors will enjoy experiencing life in this Revolutionary War era house during the holidays re-enacted by adult and youth volunteers. The costumed docents will give first person accounts of the Marshall family who lived at the “Glebe” from 1771-1786, and share stories about how the family prepared for the holiday season. Admission is free for the day. Donations are gladly accepted.
All proceeds from this weekend event will help support The Glebe House Museum & Gertrude Jekyll Garden.
