The Milford Preservation Trust will open the Minuteman House at 139 North St. on Thursday, Dec. 21, to mark the Winter Solstice — the Longest Night — from 4 to 7 p.m.

Old iron tools will be on display and nuts will be available to toss into cauldrons, which represents doing away with negative thoughts/happenings of the year.

Park in back. Canceled if rain/snow.
