A Glimpse of Christmas Past at Dorcheat Musuem

A Glimpse of Christmas Past is the theme for the Dorcheat Historical Association Museum from now until the end of the year. Museum director Schelley Francis is encouraging everyone to come by the museum at 116 Pearl Street and take a peek at what Christmas was like more than 100 years ago in Minden.

"The museum is showcasing a collection of antique Christmas cards that date from 1910-1912 that were mailed to or from a Minden family," Francis said.

The O'Bier Cabin is decked out in pioneer style for the holidays with a tree and red & white quilts.

"Don't miss taking a look at what the winter of 1892 was like in Minden with the special Minden Postcard exhibit," she said. "And, don't forget the museum has a gift shop with some great local history gifts, cookbooks, prints and DVDs. Plus shipping and gift wrapping is available for your items."

The Dorcheat Historical Association Museum will be hosting the Chamber of Commerce "After Hours" Tuesday, December 13 from 5 until 7 p.m. at 116 Pearl Street in Minden.

Theme of the evening is also "A Glimpse of Christmas Past."

"So don't miss your chance to see the museum during Christmas," Francis said.

Aadmission and guided tours to the museum are free.
