Last weekend, the Lebanon County Historical Society opened its doors to the public for its free annual open house.
The location at 924 Cumberland St. was set up for the holidays, with a brightly decorated Christmas tree and even a visit from Santa.
Volunteers were stationed throughout the site during the Sunday, Dec. 3, event to assist visitors and answer questions. A few were even in costume.
Visitors to the open house could also self-guide tours of the historic Stoy Museum.
The museum offers a glimpse into what life in Lebanon has looked like through the decades.
It is typically only viewable by tours on Saturday mornings or by appointment throughout the week.
Visitors could also view a wide variety of model trains, as well as an interactive set.
The gift shop, containing a variety of souvenirs as well as books on local history, was also open during the event.
The Lebanon County Historical Society collects historic documents and records for Lebanon Valley. Members can view the Hauck Research Archives, containing over 3,000 records, as well as utilize other benefits. Find more information about the organization at LebanonCountyHistory.org.
