West Milford. The West Milford Museum is once again hosting an ornament making craft table for the holidays.

04 Dec 2019 | 12:30

The West Milford Museum is once again celebrating the holiday season by offering a craft table for children and adults to create old-fashioned holiday ornaments – decorated pine cones, gingerbread people, and Victorian cornucopias.

The Holiday Crafts event will be at the Museum on Nov. 30, Dec. 14, and Dec. 21 between 1-4 p.m.

The Museum will provide materials and instructions, and volunteers will be available to assist.

In addition, a special seasonal exhibit will be on display at the museum featuring traditional decorations and activities from earlier periods in history.

Throughout December, visitors can view a Christmas tree decorated with hand-made ornaments and trimmings.

Discover how a family would have celebrated the holidays 100-plus years ago, view winter themed displays, learn about the township’s ice cutting industry, as well as enjoy the museum’s regular exhibits depicting local history.

There is no fee to attend, but donations are always appreciated.

The West Milford Museum is located at 1477 Union Valley Road, and is staffed by volunteer members of the West Milford Heritage Committee.
