There is still time to see the 1940s Christmas home at the Edwardsburg Area Historical Museum.
The museum will be closing for the season on Dec. 15 at 2 p.m. with the drawing for a free $100 gift card. To be eligible for the drawing visitors must tour the museum and deposit a ticket in the mystery box.
It is somewhere in the museum.
During the tour you will get a glimpse of a parlor in the 1940s, the radio that was a large part of the 1940s home and Mother’s baking kitchen and holiday dining table.
Santa has already made a visit and has left gifts under the tree.
In addition to the 1940s house, John and Sally Dalrymple have a portion of their collection of Department 56 lighted houses on display. See the turn of the century feather Christmas tree found in the attic of the Edwardsburg Library.
