Annual Christmas Open House at the Courthouse Museum
Merced County Courthouse Museum
21st and N Streets, Merced
On Sunday, December 4, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., the public is invited to experience a Community Christmas at the Courthouse Museum. We have “decked the halls” and filled the rooms of our historic building with over 70 Christmas trees. At the open house, we will serve treats and traditional Courthouse eggnog. Live entertainment will be performed by the following groups starting at 1:00 p.m.: Central Presbyterian Church Handbell Choir, Caitlin’s Suzuki Violin Studio, Women’s Holiday Chorus, Our Lady of Mercy Catholic School Christmas Choir, Cruikshank Middle School Jazz Band, and Christmas Sing-Along led by Maxwell Norton. The event is free to the public and the Courthouse Museum is located at 21st and N Streets, Merced. The Christmas tree exhibit will run through December 30.
Teachers are reminded that the museum will be open Monday through Friday mornings throughout December for walk-through tours. This is a wonderful way to introduce your class to the museum. Call the museum office at (209) 723-2401. Please support your local museum by shopping at our store for holiday gifts. Don’t forget to visit our current exhibit, “Ghosts of Merced County: Recreating Historical Moments.”
