Due to the weather, we needed to move the Open House to next weekend.
Christmas Open House will be held Saturday, Dec. 14 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and again on Sun. Dec. 15 from 1- 4 p.m. We’ll be serving wassail, Christmas cookies and coffee.
Tour the museum and check out all of the historic ornaments and decorations. We will have two trees, and our oldest ornament is from the 1940′s.
We hope to see you at the museum!
Thanks to Christopher Abele, Jr, the AHS Museum is getting a face lift and some added ‘curb appeal’. Christopher is working on his Eagle Scout project. He and several friends were at the museum this weekend working on our hillside to strengthen the hill, create a retaining wall, and make a prettier spot for flowers and bushes.
AHS Christoper Abele Eagle Scout Project… and his team
After Christopher is done with the hard part, we will still want to fill in with bulbs, perennials, and some evergreen bushes. If you’d like to donate toward the new hillside landscaping project, please make checks payable to the AHS, and indicate ‘Eagle Scout Landscaping Project’ on the memo (and we always love cash, too).
Christopher and Team having fun!
We love to see teens and adults enhancing the history and beauty of the museum. If you have an idea for a project, contact Bernie Wilde to discuss it. We have so many more ideas for improvements than we have funding or volunteer labor, so we LOVE ideas, donations, and volunteers! Be a part of our mission to Preserve and Share Arnold’s Long & Rich History through your local museum.

This weekend’s car show to benefit the Arnold Historical Society was a huge success. We served pulled pork—nice change from the usual burgers and hot dogs. There were 56 cars—a whole lot more than we expected. A great success and we’ll build next year’s show based on this year. Thanks to everyone who participated.
Check out a few of the photos, and plan to join us next year!
Next year’s Car show will be Aug. 16 same place and time.
