Holiday Open House – Colonial Arts & Crafts

Please check with event host as times and dates may have changed.

Though Puritans didn’t do much in the way of decorating, they did enjoy the arts. And Benjamin Franklin, one of Old South Meeting House’s early congregants, perfected the glass armonica, a musical instrument that Bostonians can still hear played today! Discover Old South Meeting House anew with performances by local glass armonica artist Vera Meyer and musicians from the New England Conservatory, try your hand at writing with a quill pen, and more. Fun for the whole family! Visit for schedule. This FREE public event is made possible with funding from the Lowell Institute.
