The Thomaston Historical Society will host its 10th Anniversary of Home for the Holidays, their annual fundraiser that features one of the town’s antique homes. This year’s event will take place at the home of Dr. and Mrs. William Colvin at 225 Main Street on Friday, December 9 from 5-7 PM, featuring a Wine Reception, live music, a Live Auction with auctioneer Bruce Gamage and a Silent Auction. The event continues on Saturday, December 10 from 10 AM-3 PM. Bids for the Silent Auction end at 2:30 PM.
This year’s home is the oldest home ever featured. The Hon. Joseph Sprague House was built in the Federal style in 1808, most likely by Andrew Ellison, a tailor by trade. Some special details of the house include Thomaston black marble hearthstones, a stunning example of a black faux marble mantelpiece and a beehive oven and wood box in the former kitchen fireplace.
Tickets for Friday are $18 for members and $20 for non-members and are good for Saturday also. Tickets for Saturday are $8 for members and $10 for non-members. Call Frances for tickets at 354-6924.
