Holiday Concert Celebration


William Howard Taft National Historic Site located in the Mount Auburn neighborhood will celebrate a Victorian Christmas with free events and daily tours throughout the holiday season. This is the birthplace of our nation’s 27th President and 10th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Beginning November 24, 2017, the boyhood home where William Howard Taft was born and raised will be beautifully decorated for the holidays.

On Thursday December 14th, and Friday December 15th, everyone is invited to join us for our first holiday music concerts. During this time children from The William Howard Taft Elementary Stem School will be performing on Dec. 14th and Winton Woods Primary South Elementary School will perform on December 15th. Both concerts will begin at 10:00 am. Each school will sing holiday songs to the general public for thirty minutes and then tour the Taft Boyhood Home. Victorian Arts & Crafts will be available to the general public after each concert and every day through-out the holiday season.

Our annual New Year’s Open House hosted by The Friends of William Howard Taft Birthplace will take place on Saturday, December 30, 2017 from 1pm – 4pm. Everyone is invited to visit the Taft House, enjoy holiday refreshments and socialize just as guests would have done during the 1850’s at the Taft family home.  All events are entirely free and open to the public!
