Hunterdon County Historical Society and Doric House Museum Decked Out to Delight the Senses for the Holidays


Balic of Clinton Banner

The Hunterdon County Historical Society’s 1845 Doric House Museum 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.
