The Elk County Historical Society [ECHS] will be hosting its annual Christmas Exhibit/Open House at the Center House Museum at 109 Center Street in Ridgway this Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
This year's special exhibit focuses on He-Man & the Masters of the Universe memorabilia dating as far back as 1982 and Cabbage Patch dolls, one as old as 30 years and in excellent condition.
Society director Mary Kalinowski began hosting the Christmas Exhibit when she began working for the historical society in 2007.
"Every year we try to do something different," Kalinowski said.
The ECHS will again be a stop along the Holiday Cheer Tour on Friday evening and will be serving spiked egg nog, hot chocolate and hors d'oeuvres.
"We had a fabulous turnout last year," Kalinowski said. "We had visitors right up until close. We have a good turnout on Saturday as well, because the kids really enjoy it."
The exhibit and open house is free and everyone is welcome to attend. Christmas books and ornaments will be on sale throughout the weekend.
