The Wayne County Historical Society will host two holiday open houses for the public on Friday, Dec. 2, from 4 to 7 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 3, from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is $5.00 for adults, free for those 18 and under accompanied by an adult. Tickets may be purchased at the 1873 schoolhouse near the Spink St. entrance to the grounds before beginning the self-guided tour. Additional parking is available in the St. Mary’s Church and Drug Mart lots, to the south and west of the historical society campus respectively.
Each of the eight buildings will feature at least one special exhibit, including a “Holiday Memories” vintage toy pop-up exhibit in the Kister Building and a colorful display of crazy quilts and winter clothing in the dress shop. The Beall-Stibbs House will be decorated for the season as the Beall and Stibbs families would have done in the early 19th century.
