Wabash County Historical Museum to host Christmas celebration

The Wabash County Historical Museum is excited to announce their first annual Christmas at the Museum celebration! On Thursday, Dec. 12 from 5-8 p.m., guests will enjoy live entertainment, hors d'oeuvres, hot chocolate, and a cash bar. "We wanted to give the community a chance to celebrate another great year at the museum, and we thought that the holidays were the perfect opportunity for that," said Mitch Figert, Executive Director.

Both floors of the 20,000 square foot facility are decorated for the holidays, with historical holiday facts mixed in with the tinsel.  Lamp posts sponsored by local businesses and individuals weave history and holiday together, the switchboard gals have decorated with cards from their customers and gifts from old local shops Beitman and Wolf and Dick's Men's Wear wait for lucky recipients under one of the Christmas trees.

"We wanted to make the decorations relevant to our mission, using historical photos and fun facts to tie the decorations into the rest of our interactive exhibits," explained Emily Perkins, Associate Director at the museum. "It will be fun for regular guests to spot some of the smaller decorations and details that have been added."

Responses are requested by Dec. 5.  Call 260-563-9070 to reserve your ticket, or visit the Wabash County Historical Museum at 36 E Market Street.
