The Christmas ornament features a brass cutout of Heathside, a house built in 1810 by Stephen Hopkins Smith. Eventually the town in which the home is located would become known as Lincoln, Rhode Island in 1871. The ornament features a brass banner inscribed with the home's name as well as a red silk ribbon for hanging. It is enclosed in its original packaging.
