Come view the decorated rooms of the house, festively and individually decorated by local organizations including Boy Scout Troop 42 & Cub Scout Pack 42, Reformed Church of Bound Brook, South Bound Brook Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, the Women’s Guild of South Bound Brook and Friends of the Abraham Staats House.

Stroll through the many rooms, learn about the history of the home, and get in the holiday spirit as you enjoy the seasonal decorations and holiday music of the 18th century played on the mountain and hammered dulcimer, bowed psaltery, mandolin, and fiddle throughout throughout the event by Tom Harabin.
