Mark your calendars and plan to join the fun on January 8, 2017 from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Derby Historical Society as they mark the end of the Christmas season with their annual "Twelfth Night Celebration" at the David Humphreys House. This event features tours of the 17th century David Humphreys house by costumed docents. You'll take a trip back to an earlier time in American history when touring this beautifully preserved colonial home.
Try the mulled cider and punch alongside the buffet. Partake in samples of some items which would have been served in this house during the American Revolution. There will also be modern-day baked goods to enjoy.
Colonial skills such as spinning and weaving will be displayed. Before you leave, be sure to visit the Gift Shop, it will be open during this event. This year there will be a Dickens Reading at 3 pm.
