The Phillips House, if you haven't visited lately, is one of Salem's hidden gems. It is the only house on Chestnut Street that is open to the public, and its beautifully decorated and preserved rooms allow you to step back in time to one of Salem's grandest eras. The home movie collections are fantastic, entertaining for the adults who remember the days prior to DVRs, VCRs, or Betamax, and fascinating for the kids who can't imagine a world in black-and-white AND without sound.
The cost for Winter Weekends is $5 for Historic New England members, $8 for nonmembers, $7 for students or seniors, and $6 children. Advance registration is strongly suggested as space is limited. Light refreshments including hot cocoa and cookies will be provided.
Please contact the Phillips House with any questions or to register. Online registration is available at historicnewengland.org.
