Jefferson Museum participates in “Christmas in the Village 2021”

On Saturday and Sunday, December 4 and 5, the Jefferson Museum will participate in the Jefferson Arts Committee sponsored “Christmas in the Village.” Each year the Museum is decorated with a different theme, and the theme this year is “All Aboard for Christmas”.

The Museum will be open on Saturday from 10-4 and Sunday from 1-4. Admission is Free.  The museum will be decorated with a train theme this year. The dining room will be all Polar Express. The sewing room will be dedicated to the history of trains specifically in Jefferson (with materials and help from Lake Hopatcong Historical Society and Lake Hopatcong Foundation) i.e., the Ringling Circus coming down Oak Ridge to Berkshire Valley Road to the Ringling Manor and trains bringing guests to the hotels in Lake Hopatcong.

Miss Elizabeth’s Shoppe will be converted to all Christmas items (cash or check only).  Also note, there will be Early Bird Shopping on November 27 from 10 to 2:30.

Features:  Mrs. Claus will be there Saturday and Sunday. Complimentary roasted chestnuts and hot mulled cider served from the Museum’s pot-bellied stove on Saturday.  Under a tent:  Jefferson Township Historical Society and Garden Club membership information, baked goods for sale and spill over Shoppe items.

There will be costumed docents in the museum, and multi area photo opportunities: an Antique sleigh or life size wooden soldiers.  The Gardens will be decorated with woodland creatures and candy canes throughout.

The Museum is located at 315 Dover-Milton Road, Jefferson Township.  For further information, refer to the Jefferson Township’s Historical Society website at www.jeffersontownship.net/360/historicalsociety or email Christine Williams, Jefferson Township Historical Society President at president.jhs@jeffersontownship.net, or our Museum Curator museum.jhs@jeffersontownship.net .  Follow us on facebook:  Jefferson Twsp Historical Society for latest updates.
