Beginning in 2010, the historic and beautiful Wood Memorial Library & Museum has been decorated for the season and transforms into a winter wonderland filled with more than 150 gingerbread houses on display (the largest in New England!). This festival is a major fundraiser for the Friends of Wood Memorial Library & Museum and supports our educational programs and exhibitions throughout the year. In 2019 (prior to Covid), we saw more than 10,000 visitors come through our door! The Gingerbread House Festival was founded by Main Street resident and ardent Wood supporter, Bonnie Grover and run by a dedicated group of volunteers. Additional live entertainment, raffles and an artisanal gift shop also add to the festivities.
