On the calendar this week was decorating the Farm House Museum for the upcoming holiday season. This year's exhibition, Yuletide at the Farm House, will feature the wonderful collection of historic music boxes. Each of the thirteen boxes in the collection vary in the type of mechanics and play a variety of tunes.The music box collection was a generous gift to the permanent collection from Donald E. Larew and John R. Larew. 

 

The Farm House Museum is open weekdays from noon to 4 p.m. while ISU is in session.

Mark your calendar for the Yuletide Open House - Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Join us for seasonal tours of the decorated home, refreshments, a craft for the kids and a visit from Santa Claus. This event is free and open to the public.
