Taunton earned its nickname The Christmas City, thanks to its spectacular displays of holiday lights on the Taunton Green. It has long had a reputation as a destination for shoppers buying gifts for their loved ones.

In this presentation, the Old Colony History Museum will take us on a trip back in time to explore the wonderful history of The Christmas City.

This program is made possible through CARES Act funding to Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
