Bond County Museum is once again hosting a December Holiday Open House. The museum will be open from 5:00 to 8:00 pm on Friday, December 16 with several free activities for all ages.

Kids can color activity pages and take home a Snoopy’s Christmas Dog House craft kit (while supplies last). Families can have their portrait taken with a Charlie Brown and the Peanuts crew “Photo Booth Frame” and winter backdrop. Benjamin Mills Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution have graciously decorated the Victorian home for the holidays. Bond County Historical Society volunteers will present museum tours and serve cookies and punch.

An extra special treat, Bond County Museum has put on display 2 paintings of local artist Carson Donnell, one done by Robert Whiteside in the 1970s and the other by Gracia Babbitt Farris. Whiteside’s painting sits on Carson Donnell’s own easel. All three are currently owned and on loan from Greenville resident Bill Donnell. They will remain on display through the museum’s regular Saturday hours: 10a-noon, December 17. BCM will not be open Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve.

View additional historical displays featuring Greenville’s turreted homes, more local painters, Almira College, Greenville University, the Civil War, the First World War, U.S. DeMoulin, and more. New exhibits this season include Dakota Hyde’s doll collection, artifacts from local businesses, and athletics in Bond County schools.
