Thomaston Historical Society holds its annual Home for the Holidays fundraiser Friday, Dec. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This year's featured home is the Alpheus Sherman House located at 54 Knox St., owned by Greta Van Campen and Mike Silverstein. The home was built circa 1854 by James Overlock and features the iconic fleur di lis decorative carving on the side porch that came to identify most of the houses built by Overlock in Thomaston.

Friday night is the cocktail party with sweets and savories available. There will be a live auction of a few special items, featuring auctioneer Carol Acterhof of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries. House tours will be available, highlighting the architectural details of the home as well as the owners’ art and collectibles. The first viewing of the Silent Auction items will also be available.

Saturday will offer house tours and a final opportunity for attendees to place bids in the Silent Auction. Winners will be contacted a day or two after the event concludes for pickup at the Knox Farmhouse/Railroad Station Museum at 80 Knox St.

Tickets for Friday night are limited to 100. Members are $18; nonmembers are $20. Tickets for Saturday are unlimited. Members are $8; nonmembers are $10. Friday night tickets are good for Saturday as well.
