“Join in on the Spirit of Holiday Traditions” Auburn: History’s Hometown Free Holiday Celebration December 12, 2010

Holiday Traditions is an event that was created by the Seward House over 33 years ago as a token of appreciation to the Auburn community. Since that time, other local cultural attractions and sites have opened their doors for free the second Sunday in December for residents to enjoy during the holidays. Now, the “open house” is a tradition, and again this year, participation has expanded to include churches and other organizations.
