(MACON) Mercer University will host its annual Holiday Open House at the Woodruff House Tuesday-Thursday, Nov. 29-Dec. 1, 6-8 p.m. nightly. The Woodruff House, one of Macon's grand antebellum homes, is located at 988 Bond St., adjacent to the University's Walter F. George School of Law.
For the past decade, residents and visitors alike have made this holiday event a family tradition. Each year, the rooms throughout the Greek Revival mansion are adorned with new decorations and themes, making the annual tour an exciting event for all - even the most frequent guest. Visitors follow an illuminated path to the front door where they will be greeted by deans and alumni of Mercer University.
The Holiday Open House features a 12-foot Christmas tree trimmed with more than 500 hand-painted eggs, performances by students from Mercer University's Music Department, and holiday cookies and punch for all guests.
The holiday event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Emily Turner at (478) 301-5675.
