As the holiday season comes to a close, there's one place celebrating by turning back the clock.

The Phelps Mansion Museum holiday open house takes place this Sunday. In addition to traditional Christmas decorations, the museum features a clothing exhibit from the 1912 to 1925 time period. Three different curators are contributing to the show, some even providing clothing from their own personal collections. Collections chair and curator Tamara Gates says she's enjoying integrating the holidays into this year's experience.

"We have a piano player and a singer. We have a couple of women decorating a tree. We have a 1912 Christmas party upstairs, we have a 1912 tea party. We have women shopping, 1918. So, we've been able to put the Christmas theme into this and decorate around it. And, that's been half the fun," said Gates.

The Phelps Mansion Museum is located at 191 Court Street in Binghamton. The Holiday Open House is free and runs from 2 to 5 p.m.
