Historic New England hosted A Century on The Hill on September 30, 2016, with Committee Co-chairs Joan and Ernst Berndt, Karen and Warren McFarlan, and Gina and Steve White.

More than one hundred guests gathered at the historic Otis House for an elegant cocktail reception celebrating the 100th anniversary of preserving Otis House. The evening was a rare opportunity to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres inside the historic house museum. The event raised more than $100,000 to benefit the preservation and sharing of New England heritage.

In addition to the historic setting, guests enjoy a special menu of passed hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails from Capers Catering, music performed by harpist Nancy Hurrell and violinist Sophie Wang, and special lighting effects from Lewis Lighting Design.

Funds raised at A Century on The Hill support preservation projects, education, and public programs at Historic New England.
