Future Open House
Christmas is coming to the Pioneer Village and Mishler Weaving Mill at the Smithville Community Historical Society. This is the once a year occasion to visit the Pioneer Village and Mishler Weaving Mill during the hours of 6 to 8:30 P.M. on Saturday, December 5 to enjoy the village decorated for the Holidays, period decorated trees in several buildings, and the lighted walk to the Historic Church of God. Of course Santa Clause will be in the Lydo Barn to greet the children; all while being serenaded with carols from “The Village Carolers. A special tribute to “Frosty the Snowman,” will be located in the Caboose, learn the history behind this treasured Christmas Story. There will be treats for all in the various buildings at the village.
On Sunday, December 6, from 1:30 to 4 P.M. visit the Christmas decorated Village during the day and enjoy the holiday treasures displayed in our historic buildings. At 3:30 P.M. join us in the Historic Church of God for a traditional Christmas Concert presented by the Orrville Community Band conducted by John Robertson. This concert will present many traditional Christmas tunes and some not so traditional tunes. Both days transportation will be provided in our early 1900’s “Kid Wagon,” which was used in the Congress area. It is usually pulled with a team of horses, but due to our unpredictable weather it will be pulled by a tractor.
The general meeting of the Smithville Community Historical Society will be held on December 7 at 7 P.M. in the historic Church of God. Please note that this meeting falls on the day when Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941; Christmas will be presented as it would have been that year. The quartet “Sweet Spirit” will perform music from WWII and Christmas songs. We encourage members to bring small WWII items to display and/or to dress in 1940’s clothing. This is also our annual cookie exchange, bring some to share. Beverages will be provided by the officers.
