The Wood County Historical Museum has transitioned into Holiday mode and is ready to accept our members and visitors for the annual festivities. The Museum staff hopes to see you at a special event or at the tour itself – and we hope you enjoy what all is new this year!
Of course our website has all the details: http://woodcountyhistory.org/pr_holidaytour.html
But here are a few of the highlights:
The Old Home Holiday Gala is this Friday, 6-8 PM. The special menu has been hand-selected from cookbooks in the Historical Society’s collection. In addition to touring the exhibits festively decorated for Christmas, we have developed a special “immsersive experience” that chronicles the residents’ journey to the Wood County Infirmary. Reservations appreciated by calling 419-352-09067. Admission is $20 and can be paid in advance or at the door.
Seats are still available for the Christmas Tea on Thursday, Dec. 18 at 2 PM. $12/adult, $10 WCHS member, $3/child and please register by calling 419-352-0967.
The Old Home Holiday Tour starts Saturday, Dec. 7 and runs thru Dec. 19. Special activities on select days include the popular visit from Santa, live music performances, and a working train exhibit, but new this year are Log Cabin activities such as a Civil War Christmas interpretation, and storytelling from nationally-renowned storyteller and author, Csenge Zalka. The “immersive experience” continues throughout the tour, adding our unique history into the festival holiday season.
If you are interested in volunteering, we are also looking for a few hands to help with kids crafts or to donate cookies. Please email Tim Gaddie <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you are interested in helping out.
