Christmas at the Museum of the Henry’s Fork
We plan to have the Christmas village open the weekend of the American Dog Derby. Anyone wishing to see the Christmas village display can text or call Mary at 208-681-4082.
In 2020 the part of the museum basement was remodeled to house a Christmas village display. Murals of local scenery were painted on the walls by Joyce Leonard. Lonnie and Kathy Atchley loaned a portion of their extensive Christmas village to the museum. Due to the display’s size and time to put it out each year it hadn’t been displayed for over 10 years. The display is now available year around.
In 2021, additional murals were added to the display by Joyce Leonard and a 5 ft by 8 ft train table was constructed by Wayne McCausey. Three additional display tables will be added and the train table will depict the Ashton to Yellowstone Park area.
This display area is open to the public Thanksgiving weekend and throughout the Christmas season.
