Trombley/Centre House

 Trombley/Centre House, the oldest frame house in Bay City, will host a Holiday Open House for two Friday evenings in December.  Be sure and plan to visit this historic home as it is decorated for the holidays!

     

Visit the parlor where the family entertained their guests, view old-fashioned dolls and toys, see the dining room where boarders once shared a meal, peer into the 1880s kitchen and smell the aroma of food prepared on a wood stove.  Play a game with your children, enjoy the 1800s holiday ambiance and maybe a cookie and some hot chocolate, too!
