Holiday Memories to close Dec. 30

The all new Holiday Memories exhibit will be featured at the Sheboygan County Historical Museum in Sheboygan through Monday, Dec. 30

The entire exhibit is built around The Gifts of Christmas theme. The main museum building features an all new display using original animated characters once featured in the windows of the H.C. Prange Company department store.

New Lead Elf, Bernie Markevitch, is the visionary this year, guiding the efforts of nearly 30 volunteers over the last several months to create lively displays celebrating two traditional gifts of Christmas, the animated window displays of the Prange’s store and candy.

After peering into a window scene much like those featured years ago at Prange’s, visitors are transported into Candyland, where the major candy holidays are all celebrating the holiday season.

The Gifts of Christmas theme continues in the Taylor House, decorated by the Lake Shore Garden Club and the Ivy League Garden Club under the guidance of Bernie Markevitch.

Decorations celebrating music, memories, traditions, faith, childhood and even snow sparkle throughout both floors of the house.

Those who would like can also work on a scavenger hunt, searching for gifts made famous in books and lore.

The Weinhold Log House features a holiday display researched and prepared by museum intern David Reese, based on diary entries of the Lau family.

Much like the Weinhold family, the Laus were early German immigrants that settled in Sheboygan County, and both families would have brought special customs from their home country.

There are several historic games for the children and adults to enjoy as well. The main museum building features a number of other popular activities and displays.

The Lakeshore Miniature Makers have four cases of their work on display. These tiny works of art are a fascinating part of the magic of the holidays. Several local schools and youth organizations trimmed the galleries with decorated trees, each with a special message this holiday season.

The very popular Garton Pedal Toy Corral is set up with several Garton pedal vehicles for younger guests to ride.

A number of other activities are also available, including a makeand take wooden sailboat. The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at the Sheboygan County Historical Museum, located at 3110 Erie Ave. in Sheboygan.
