History lays the groundwork for strong, resilient communities. No place really becomes a community until it is wrapped in human memory: family stories, tribal traditions, civic commemorations. No place is a community until it has awareness of its history. Our connections and commitment to one another are strengthened when we share stories and experiences.        American Association of State and Local History - The Value of History

Bring your camera and settle in for an lovely family afternoon. Santa will be in the house nestled in front of the beautiful Carnegie Library fireplace in the Museum's Research Center. This is a great opportunity to take a family photo or your children's photo away from the hustle and bustle of the mall. There are holiday crafts for children to create and tasty treats.  The Museum is decked out for the holiday so set aside the afternoon for a delightful family experience.
