MILFORD — Christmas will be celebrated in an old-fashioned way at the Milford Historical Society (MHS) every Sunday from Nov. 7 to Dec. 19.

In response to COVID-19 restrictions, a scaled down Christmas event will be limited to shopping in the Country Store — from 1 to 4 p.m. every Sunday at the Bryan-Downs House, 34 High St. — and at a gift table of crafts made by MHS’s Herbcrafter members.

MHS has a selection of local history books and reproductions of old maps that make nice gifts. For children there are old-fashioned toys (no batteries needed), such as pick-up sticks, dominoes, marbles, amethyst crystals and necklaces.

Masks must be worn, and social distancing is expected. For more information, go to or telephone (203) 874-2264.
