For the first time in 25 years, the Mann House in Concord is decorated for the holiday season! You can visit the home’s first floor during Concord’s Home for the Holidays event, December 3 – 12, 2021.  

Museum staff and volunteers began decorating in October. They had a little help from the Concord Fire Department, pictured to the right, who carried in and set up the home's nine foot tall Christmas tree! 

The Mann House opens for special hours during the week, in conjunction with events all over the village!

Friday, December 3, 6 - 8 p.m.

Join the family of the late Marie and Glenn Miller as they host the evening in Marie’s honor.  As the first curator of the Mann House from 1970 to 1990, Marie started the museum’s popular Christmas events.

A Christmas tree with cream lights, feathers and ornaments is displayed on a staircase landing.

Saturday, December 4, 2 - 4 p.m. and 6 - 8 p.m.

Before you visit, join the Paddock Hubbard Memorial Museum for an ecumenical service of readings and songs. They take place from 2 to 5 p.m. at the historic Universalist Church of Concord, right across the street from the Mann House.
