With its dazzling Christmas trees and lavish decorations, Deck the Halls!, the Annual Open House at Fall River Historical Society (FRHS), is a cherished tradition for many in the Southcoast region. The Society’s grand mansion with period interiors is decked out in holiday finery in the Victorian manner, and the focal point is a series of themed trees adorned with thousands of lights and mouth-blown ornaments. The 2014 trees include The Colors of Christmas, A Salute to Santa, and Rhapsody in Silver and Snow.

Deck the Halls! was spotlighted on The Rhode Show on Channel 12 and the Channel 10 Evening News during the holidays last year and has also been featured in Victorian Homes magazine. It is sure to instill holiday spirit in one and all! Admission is free and includes Palette Pictures VI, an exhibit of artworks donated by local artists, and Echoes of Lizzie, the world’s largest exhibit of artifacts pertaining to the life and trial of Lizzie Borden.

Open daily through December 30, from 9 to 4:30 on weekdays and 1 to 5:00 on weekends. Closed on Christmas day and at noon on December 24. For more information, call (508) 679-1071, ext. 1 or 2.
