Customs House Museum and Cultural Center

Did you know that most Christmas ornaments were once made of glass, that candles were used on Christmas trees instead of electric lights, and in 1900 it cost only 2 cents to mail a Christmas card?

Join us as we discover Christmas Past and make some decorations of our own.

This event is free with your paid admission or museum membership.

For more information contact Sue Lewis at 931.648.5780.

The Museum will be closed December 24th and 25th for the Christmas holiday.
