Holiday Cooking Event at the inn!
Flemington's "Doric House" Museum Decked Out to Delight the Senses for the Holidays and will come alive this winter with the scents and smells of the holiday season. Once the home of master architect and builder Mahlon Fisher, this stately high-style Greek revival house will be open to the public on two Thursdays, December 3 and 10th from 1-4 pm, and again on two Sundays, December 6 and 13th 1-4 pm. In addition, the Doric House will be open Saturday, November 28th from 1-6 pm to help kick- off the holiday festivities with the downtown Flemington's "shop local" event that includes holiday entertainment on Main Street and carriage rides from 3:00-6:30 pm. The Hunterdon County Historical Society is located @ 114 Main Street in Flemington.
Two local garden clubs bring the season to life each year at the Hunterdon County Historical Society's library and Doric House Museum. The Community Garden Club of Hunterdon County and the Garden Club of Hunterdon Hills, will transform the home and library with many natural, hand-made decorations. This year's theme of spices and smells will surely bring back a nostalgic feel of the holidays as the garden decorators work their magic in the historic rooms with cinnamon, gingerbread, apples, dried herbs and sage. Visitors may also view the Stangl Gallery, the second and third floor period rooms and gallery of the Doric House and the Society's library.

It is a beautiful Greek Revival home and the Christmas decorations really transform the house into a feast for the eyes.
