The Stevens-Crawford Heritage House will hold its annual holiday open house 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 7 at the museum, located at 603 Sixth St. in Oregon City. Inspiration for the holiday décor is from E.T.A. Hoffman’s storybook of 1816, “The Nutcracker.”

Complimentary cookies, punch and coffee are served all day. Attendees also will be treated to live strings, flute, piano and song. A fundraising raffle, for $1 a ticket, features prizes including a Nutcracker Doll, Victorian-style jewelry, storybooks and more.
