The Garden Club continues its ongoing project of decorating the historic Merrick House for the holidays and the Holiday Open House.
We purchase the greens, holiday decor which grace the home’s porch and interior. This year a homestead nursery donated all of the lovely poinsettas decorating the house. One day in late November or early December, a group of members assembles to adorn George Merrick’s childhood home with echoes of Christmas celebrations from the 1920s.
