The historic Coral Gables Merrick House, home of city founder George Merrick, will open its doors to the community to celebrate the holidays.
A Holiday Open House is scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 8, 2012, beginning at 1 p.m. Join us for musical performances, Santa’s arrival at 2:15 p.m., and caroling by The Yuletide Carolers from 3:00-4:00 p.m.
There will be ongoing face painting, refreshments, visits with Santa and self-guided tours of the home. The event, organized by the Coral Gables Merrick House Governing Board, is free and open to the public.
Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Coral Gables Merrick House exists today much as it did in the 1920s and is filled with the Merrick family’s artwork, photographs, furniture, and personal treasures.
The Merrick House is located at 907 Coral Way. For more information contact the Historical Resources Department at 305-460-5093.
