RCHS Christmas Open House

December 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Ross County Historical Society invites the public to celebrate the holidays at its Christmas Open House Saturday, December 10, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Ross County Heritage Center, 45 West Fifth Street, Chillicothe. Features will include a beautiful, one-of-a-kind Christmas tree decorated with hundreds of hand-cut paper ornaments–a traditional Pennsylvania German craft known as Scherenschnitte–by local artist Bonnie Grove; a charming Victorian Christmas parlor with late 19th & early 20th century holiday decorations and toys; and other exhibits including “Toys from the Attic,” and “Chillicothe’s Model Railroad.”  The event will also present an opportunity to see our current exhibit in the McKell Library featuring early Ross County Samplers & Needlework from the historical society’s textile collections. Enjoy traditional holiday atmosphere and browse the Museum Store for special holiday gifts including many books and other hard-to-find publications on local and regional history for those history buffs on your shopping list.  Giftshop items featured this year will be many examples of Bonnie Grove’s Scherenschnitte Christmas ornaments and framed cuttings as well.

Please join the Ross County Historical Society for a visit to Christmas past.  Admission is free, and everyone is welcome.
