Stuhr Museum Christmas Past & Present|
From the warmth of a stove fireplace to the carols in the streets, from the smells of baking to the peace of a Christmas gone by, Stuhr Museum’s “Christmas Past and Present” is a holiday experience you can’t find anywhere else. This year’s event runs December 7, 13, 14 & 15 with Members Only night on December 6.
From the soft glow of lanterns to the smells of Christmas cooking to the 19th century decorations around every corner, visitors to Stuhr Museum identify “Christmas Past and Present” as one of the most memorable events on the museum’s schedule. This is the 26th year for the event and Stuhr’s 1890’s Railroad Town will feature dozens of open homes and businesses to explore and visit, the sounds of live music will waft from the rural church, visitors can take a horse-drawn wagon ride around the grounds and Christmas past will be celebrated in many different and memorable ways.

•Cooking in the Cleary Farmhouse
•Tinsicle making in the Tinsmith Shop
•Paper ring ornaments for your tree at the Boarding House
•Christmas baking in Menck Cabin at the Road Ranche
