Linden Place Museum in downtown Bristol is celebrating the holiday season with tours of the 200-year old Federal-style mansion throughout December. This year, Linden Place has chosen “The Poetry of Christmas” for a holiday decorating theme. Lines and lyrics of popular works will be featured throughout the house. This year, the colors of white, gold and silver, combined with evergreens, berries and nuts, and fruit, have been chosen to reflect the light and joy of the season as well as hope for a shining New Year. Daniel Wallace, a landscape architect from Newton, Mass., led the team of volunteers and staff members who transformed Linden Place.
