The streets of Chestertown’s waterfront district were alive with colonial spirit December 8 during the Holiday House Tour. The tour benefited two local schools and included three College properties: Hynson-Ringgold House, the Custom House, and the Patrick Henry House. First Lady Elisabeth Reiss was one of the chief organizers of the event.
Saturday, December 8 was the 2nd Annual Colonial Chestertown Day and Christmas House Tour. Wandering around the historic district was like stepping back in time. Costumed interpreters, carriage rides, and carolers were to be spotted in and around the beautifully decorated 18th century homes. Several Starr Center student associates and members of the Washington College History Society joined in the festive day.
