Kent Historical Society to host Open House

There is a chance for Kent residents to explore vintage-style decor and enjoy holiday snacks at a Holiday Open House.

The Greater Kent Historical Society is hosting the event from noon to 7 p.m. on Dec. 3. It is free and suitable for any age.

The society asks attendees to bring unwrapped children's toys to the open house. All donations go to the Kent Fire Department's Toys for Joy program.

Toys for Joy is an annual event created by firefighters for needy families. All donated toys are collected, sorted, wrapped and delivered to the Kent Food Bank for distribution to needy families in the community.

A portion of the toys is also donated to other local food banks.

The Kent Historic Museum is located at, 855 E. Smith St. Parking is available behind the museum building.
