The Museum of Newport Irish History will hold its 7th Annual Christmas Open House at its Interpretive Center on Saturday, December 9, from 12:00 noon to 4:30 p.m. Visitors can view the exhibits while enjoying Celtic holiday music, eggnog, and cookies. From 3:30-4:30 p.m., there will be caroling by the Ancient Order of Hibernians Men Singers. Celtic-inspired Christmas ornaments and lapel pins will be available for sale throughout the Open House, with proceeds to benefit the Museum. Visitors to the Center will learn about Irish immigration to Newport County from the colonial era to the present and the many contributions made to our community by individuals of Irish descent. The exhibits include maps, photographs, and models, including a vintage lighted model of historic St. Mary’s Church depicted at Christmas time. Admission is complimentary, but donations are gratefully accepted. Free parking is available on the street. To learn more or to join the Museum, please visit our website or contact us via email.
