Visit US for the 35th Annual CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL!
This year we will have judging of trees & wreaths, with prizes! You are automatically entered with your entry.
TAKE DOWN/PICK UP TIMES: One week- Thursday, January 2nd to Wednesday, January 8th, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (We are closed New Year’s Day and Sundays in January). Remember: anyone in the group can set up, and anyone can take down. Call if you cannot take down in those days.
TOURS of trees: If your group will be coming in to view the creations, please call the museum with date and time so we are not swamped with large groups.
SPECIAL THIS YEAR: In the main floor Attic Exhibit are thousands of Santa Clauses through the ages- a portion of local residents Bill & Winnie Findley's huge Santa collection is now on display. Bring the family and pick out the one you like the best- many of the collectibles have information on what image of Santa is protrayed. (And the attic is decorated too!)

34th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL, 2012
At the MONROE COUNTY HISTORICAL MUSEUM
The Christmas Tree Festival was back for another year- thanks to Monroe County voters! Perhaps you went to the kickoff Open House, and got to see the many trees and wreaths specially decorated to make the museum more festive for the holidays. Thanks to all the groups and clubs and schools (all of Jefferson District's Sodt Elementary school participated and visited the museum!) who took the time to showcase their creativity. Get your ideas for this year's Festival- our 35th year.
