SUNY Orange and the Middletown Garden Lovers are “Celebrating the Holidays in America”. The Garden Lovers have decorated stately Morrison Hall on the College’s Middletown campus for the 18th annual SUNY Orange Holiday Open House.
Visitors to Morrison Hall are able to view the mansion’s five first-floor rooms awash in holiday splendor courtesy of the award-winning Garden Lovers. Morrison Hall will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. on December 15 and 16. Admission is free. Volunteers will be posted in each room to assist in any way they can for this self-guided tour.
SUNY Orange holds this Holiday Open House to present this historical building to the public, and to involve the surrounding community during the holiday season. Donations are also accepted for the Peter Alberghini Inspirational Scholarship. Alberghini, a long-time SUNY Orange employee and advocate for Orange County residents through education, civic work and mental health programs, originated the Holiday Open House as a way for the local community to enjoy Morrison Hall.
