Last Week-end to Enjoy Christmas at your Versailles Area Museum

We invite you to stop by the Museum this Sunday to see us all decked out for the holiday from 1:00 to 4:00. That will give you time to browse through our Christmas displays to get a glimmer of Christmas Past.

From the peace of our Church room to treats in Martin’s Toyland, and you won’t want to miss a peak into Grandma’s Kitchen 1900 style for delicious samples of old time treats and recipes, new each week!

Clarence Pittsenbarger, referred to by his friends as “Pittsy” was a cabinet maker and a great tinkerer. Pittsy delighted the children of Versailles by building a unique motorized Santa & sleigh, now at the museum. Also a host of his homemade toys he created are perched under our Enterpuner Room’s tree for you to enjoy remembering.
Learn about the famous Russell’s and their circus adventures as well as facts about our Great Fire of 1901 and how our Community survived.

Thanks to all the kids at Brilliant Beginnings for helping make some special decorations for our School room. It looks great!

Also a visit to our gift shop for wonderful after Christmas surprises for your collections!

Come get in the spirit of Christmas Past at your Versailles Museum. Admission is always free, but your generous donations are most appreciated!

Coming January 27, 2014 is our first “Last Monday of the Month at the Museum”. This 1:00 p.m. program is designed for our Senior friends to include a trivia game, some old pictures and a great dessert. We hope you’ll mark this on your calendar.

The Museum will be closed on Sundays during the month of January.

For group tours please call the museum office at 526-4222 and someone will get back to you. Happy Holidays!
