The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) announces that for the 2012 winter holiday season each room of the Osborne Homestead Museum, Derby, will showcase a seasonal plant connected to holiday folklore and tradition. Enjoy the holidays from a new perspective. Featured plants will include Poinsettia, Pine, Christmas Rose, Laurel, Rosemary/Herbs, Holly, Ivy, Mistletoe and Pomegranate.

The museum was the home of conservationist, business woman and philanthropist Frances Osborne Kellogg, who lived in the house her entire life, from 1876 to 1956.

As they have done for more than twenty years, volunteers create the beautiful holiday decorations. Talented, committed volunteers represent the Ansonia Garden Club, Olde Ripton Garden Club, the Garden Club of Orange, Naugatuck Garden Club, Roxbury/Bridgewater Garden Club, Derby Garden Society, the Pomperaug Valley Garden Club, the Oxford Garden Club and Ye Olde Kellogg Garden Society.

The exhibit will be open from November 23 through December 16, Thursday - Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. for guided tours of the homestead. On Friday evenings, November 30, December 7 and December 14 the museum will present “twilight tours,” highlighting the special glow of the decorations from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Group tours for adults and youth programs are also available; please call (203) 734-2513 if you wish to schedule a group of eight or more visitors.

The Osborne Homestead Museum exhibits the fine art and antiques of Frances Osborne Kellogg. There is no admission fee; donations are gratefully accepted. The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s Osborne Homestead Museum is located at 500 Hawthorne Avenue, Derby, CT.
