MERRY, MAGICAL MIDDLE STREET WALK AT THE SARGENT HOUSE
The Sargent House thanks everyone who helped create a magical day to appeal to Middle Street Walkers’ eyes, ears, and appetites.
The Sargent House Museum gives a huge cheer to Nathan Cohen and His Talented Rockport High School Student Chamber Music Players who regaled us with an extraordinary playlist.
The stellar performers included:
Isa Brisson, Aidan Flynn, Lydia Giangregorio , Sayles Kasten , Nelson Pike, Soni Razdan, Emma Sekercan
Gloucester High School Sargent House intern Hannah St Cyr graciously greeted guests and revived their frosty fingers with hot mulled cider and homemade goodies—fresh baked muffins, anyone? Not a crumb remained.
Jay performed the part of Reverend John Murray, the love of Judith’s life. Judith led an appreciative audience back to the House to view John and Judith’s bedrooms and her rare writing closet.
Many thanks go to the volunteers who decorated the House with fresh greens. Eva DiLascio, Barbe Ennis, and Vicky Bennet showed off their artistry and skill.
The showcase designs on view throughout the House are rendered in ribbons, greens and berries, gilded shells and holly–often in unique containers–are for sale. Next year, stop by for special holiday events and pick out your own fresh wreath or centerpiece to help support the Sargent House!
Happy Holidays to all!
Credit must go, with pleasure, to Sharron Cohen for her photographs.

Judith Nast Writes In-
The Sargent House Museum would like to invite people to a lecture followed by refreshments and a tour of the museum tour this coming Saturday at 2pm at the Sawyer Library. We’re delighted to have the wonderful author, Tim Orwig, talk about Joseph Chandler’s work in preserving the musuem in the early part of the 20th century. Joseph Everett Chandler, preservationist and antiquarian, was a champion of Colonial Restoration, most often referred to as the Colonial Revival style. He believed architectural forms demonstrated values of their builders, and that a culture could not survive without preserving reminders of its origins and character. After the lecture, we’ will walki over to the museum for refreshments and a tour. You may have noticed that the Sargent House Museum is in the midst of an exterior restoration project. Come see what it’s all about! Get tickets online at sargenthouse.org.
Thanks for your support and helping us get the word out!
Here we go again
