Museum Christmas

Museum Christmas continues a long tradition of the Jefferson Township Museum being decorated for the Christmas season. In the later 1980’s,  society members decorated the parlor and the dining room with a Victorian theme. A live tree was decorated with candles and ornaments. It was called Victorian Christmas. The Museum Garden Club began decorating the outside with live greens and bows. Eventually, the garden club would decorate inside and outside..  Each year a theme with historical significance is selected. Members choose a room to develop the theme. An antique sleigh has become part of the anticipated decorations. The name was changed to Museum Christmas. On Museum Christmas weekend, Society members dress in vintage costumes to guide guest through the building. Hot mulled cider is offered  by the pot-bellied stove . Mrs. Claus has been known to give out candy canes. The Museum is part of Christmas in the Village traditionally the first Saturday of December and  is also  open  Sunday.
