The Milton Historical Society is hosting its annual holiday open house on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Suffolk Resolves House, 1370 Canton Ave., Milton. The event is free and light refreshments will be available.

The Suffolk Resolves House was so named because Milton was once in Suffolk County before the boundaries were redrawn and is the building where the Suffolk Resolves were signed on Sept. 4, 1774. The Resolves were an important

predecessor document to the Declaration of Independence.

The house is now the headquarters of the Milton Historical Society.
