A sleigh-maker's home welcomed guests Sunday as Westborough residents began feeling the holiday spirit.
The Westborough Historical Society held an open house at its home, the William Sibley House on Parkman Street.
Sleigh-maker William H. Sibley built the home in 1844 "for his bride, Jane Caroline Gibson," according to a historical society pamphlet.
Today, the home will host Marlborough resident John Gately discussing “Collecting Works of Historical Americana, Including Books and Ephemera," at 7 p.m.
Admission is free to this historical society program.
