Holiday open house turns back the clock in Stratford

STRATFORD -

Members of the Stratford Historical Society invited the community Saturday to step through a portal into the 1700s.

The Holiday Open House comes every other year, welcoming people to walk through the historical Captain David Judson House and get a full colonial tour.

"The house was brought back to its natural colors. Everything is authenticated in here and all the furnishings were given by some of the first families, the descendants were very proud to have this place become a historical society," says assistant director Sandra Rutkowski.

In the museum that sits behind the house, children made crafts and visited with Santa.
