CREHST displaying Christmas village through Jan. 9

Herald staffDecember 17, 2013 

The CREHST Museum will feature a Christmas village exhibit from now to Jan. 9. The village is valued at $1,800.

The village has about 35 sets consisting of one or more items, and some of the pieces are from The Department 56 Dickenson Collection.

The Department 56 brand began with the Snow Village collection of six houses in 1976. Some of the more commonly known pieces in the collection are Fezziwig's Warehouse, Kensington Palace, The Tower of London, Treetop Tree House and an animated skating pond.

The CREHST collections were donated by three Tri-City residents.

During the exhibit, visitors may place silent auction bids to purchase one or more sets. Winning bidders will be notified after the exhibition ends.

The CREHST Museum is at 95 Lee Blvd., Richland, next to Howard Amon Park. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for seniors and students.
