Springfield’s Historic Cannon Ball House, located at 126 Morris Ave., will be open on Dec. 2. from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. In celebration of the holiday season, the house will be decorated for the occasion in a manner appropriate to the year 1840. In addition, historical experts will discuss the origins of some Christmas traditions will be discussed.
Also on display will be some of the letters written by local soldier Wellington Briant, describing his experience fighting for the Union army during the Civil War.
This will be the last chance to view Wellington’s letters from 1862, before we replace them with his 1863 correspondence. So come visit us for a festive outing during which you can discover how the Cannon Ball House got its name!
House Admission: $2 for adults, free for children 12 and under. For more information call 973-376 4784.
