Volunteers are busy putting up the nativity scene exhibits and decorating for the holidays. We are also planning a fun holiday event on Saturday, Dec. 13, to kick off our nativity exhibit, which will include a chili supper fundraiser, drawings, raffles, pictures with Santa, hayrides, and blacksmith demonstration. Watch for the fliers!

Our museum is open from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children above 6 years. Free access to the Old Trail Gallery if you just want to shop. We have many new items for sale, including holiday gift items, and we appreciate your shopping locally.
