The Brookings-Harbor Garden Club has brought Christmas Past to the Chetco Valley Museum.

The museum, housed in one of oldest buildings in Southwestern Oregon, is decorated for the holidays as it would have been in the late 1800s.

The museum's Christmas display will be open for the public from 2 to 4 p.m. on the weekends of Dec. 6-7 and Dec. 13-14.

The museum is part of the Habitat For Humanity Tour, from 3:30 to 9 p.m Sunday, Dec. 14.

Santa Claus will be on hand to greet children both weekends.

At 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, Curry County Historian Walt Schroeder will talk about the history of Brookings.

Each weekend visitors can enjoy local musicians in the museum annex and view trees decorated by students from Kalmiopsis Elementary School.

The museum is located at 15461 Museum Road, off Highway 101 south of Harbor. Admission is free.
