Christmas Mountain Display
Monroe County Local History Room
See the North Pole come to life again this holiday season with a new exhibit at the Monroe County Local History Room. The “Christmas Mountain” display features over 100 illuminated miniature buildings depicting the magic, mystery, and childhood innocence of the North Pole. From the reindeer stables to the various candy shops and elf workshops, this enchanting and whimsical display embodies the wonder of Christmas for visitors young and old.
This unique layout features the North Pole Holiday Village collection of the late Joan Cook of Sparta. Joan was a dedicated promoter of Monroe County history and a passionate fan of the holidays. This “Christmas Mountain” display celebrates both Joan and the magic of Christmastime.
An opening reception for the exhibit will occur on Tuesday, November 19, from 6:30pm-8:00pm. The collection will be on display thru January 18. Museum admission is free. The Local History Room is located at 200 W. Main Street in Sparta. Regular museum hours are Monday-Saturday, 9-4:30. It will also be open until 8pm on November 29-30, December 6-7, and 13-14.
