Cohen Bray House invites you to come to our Annual Holiday Tour and Tea,
The house was built in 1884 by Watson and Julia Bray for their daughter, Emma, upon her marriage to Alfred H. Cohen on February 28, 1884. The house was furnished by A.A. Cohen and Emilie Gibbons Cohen parents of Alfred H. Cohen. Our tour will be throughout the house and include items never seen before.
The house has been lived in by the Cohen Family for 135 years and is now an Historic House Museum on the National Register and is an Oakland Landmark. We are a Study Center for museums and students of clothing, art, ceramics and more.
Stepping into the house is like going back in time as the house has not been changed since 1884 when the bride and groom moved in. The house is full of amazing artifacts that demonstrate the life and culture of one family over 135 years. Books, photos, flatware, art, furniture, clothes, and much more are available to observe and study.
The tea will begin with a tour of the upper rooms of the house. After tea you will tour the lower floor.
We encourage you to wear period clothing from 1880's to 1980's.
Be sure to dress warmly as the house is not heated in every room.
