What do corsets and mustache cups have to do with Christmas trees? They’re a natural fit at the Andover Historical Society’s annual history-inspired tree exhibit. This year’s tree inspirations were pulled from our latest exhibit, Common Indecency, which takes a light-hearted look at the things we do before we go out. Dressing gowns, curling irons, button hooks, toilet paper, and, yes, corsets, are included in the exhibit. All were the inspiration for 20 Christmas trees decorated by community groups and members.
The history-inspired Christmas trees and Common Indecency are open every Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, through December 31. General admission is $5, free to Historical Society members and all children under 12. Follow the links for information about the tree exhibit and all our December programs.
Thank you to all our designers and decorators!
