Sod House Celebrating 120th Anniversary with Christmas Open House

The 120th anniversary of the Marshal McCully's sod house will be celebrated at the Sod House Museum's Christmas Open House on Saturday, December 13, from 1–3 p.m.

The sod house will be decorated in the traditional style of the late 1800s, while the museum facility will be decorated for Christmas commemorating different decades, including the early 1900s without electricity, the 1940s and 1950s with icicles, the 1960s with a silver tree, and 21st century Christmas decorations. Christmas music and early day songs will be the entertainment for the event. Cookies and spiced cider will be provided by the Friends of the Sod House. To celebrate the 120th anniversary of the Sod House the Friends group will be giving a Christmas tree ornament to each family in attendance. The Christmas Open House is free to visitors as our "thank you" for your continued support of the museum.
