PARIS – The Paris Cape Historical Society will hold a holiday open house from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, at its new museum at 77 High St., about a quarter of a mile from Market Square.

It will be decorated in the style of an old-fashioned Christmas inside and out, and admission is free, although donations will be accepted to help with maintenance. There will be guided tours and refreshments, and appointments can be made for help with genealogy research.

The Paris Cape is inviting new members to join and sign-up forms are available. There will be 2005 calendars for $5, with 12 scenes of Paris and Paris Hill, showing the dome on the Paris Hill Jail (now library-museum), trolley car in Market Square, the statue-fountain in Moore Park and other items for gift-giving.

Formerly known as the Porter House, the museum sits on the corner of Porter Street and High Street. It is open most Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m.
