Historical Holiday Hosts
Then ho-ho-head over to the Jordan House Museum or Bennett School Museum for our first ever Historical Holiday decorating competition!
Individuals, organizations, families or small groups are all invited to decorate a room in a classic holiday style, with any personal creativity you choose. Your rooms will be showcased during Tea Time and Open Houses in December.
Visitors will be asked to vote on their favorite room and the winning decorators will receive a prize package from Valley Junction businesses. Rooms, suggested themes and more information can be found here.
To register for your preferred room, call the WDMHS at 515.225.1286
