Holiday tradition with locomotive emphasis rides to museum

Christmas tradition with a train emphasis is the theme of the South Boston/Halifax County Museum’s holiday display this year.  

The public is invited to come to the Open House on Sunday from 2 to 3:30 p.m. to kick off the holiday season. There will be model train layouts, a display of rooms of the past ready for the holidays, pictures with Santa, light refreshments and the chance to see the new historic display in the caboose.

Ron and Judith Miller are doing the scenery of Halifax County train stations of the 1930-40s, and there will be era style trains running through the layout. Kids of all ages will really enjoy this. 

Additionally, Lynne Curley will be doing a live demonstration of spinning wool in one of the room areas. That’s a lot of fun to pack into one afternoon.   

For more information, call the museum for details at 572-9200.
