On December 11, 2016, the Varnum House Museum hosted its Annual Colonial Yuletide Celebration featuring festive holiday decorations, live music, refreshments, and host guided tours by docents in period costume. We had over 100 visitors tour the museum and take in many new exhibits and revamped rooms in this 1773 mansion museum. We even had a visit from Rhode Island Congressman Jim Langevin. Built in 1773 by General James Mitchell Varnum, the museum contains a wide variety of rare, early American furniture, letters, books, musical instruments, children’s toys, and other antiques.
