Garst Museum Holiday Open House

Garst Museum’s annual Holiday Open House will be held on Sunday, December 3 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The public is cordially invited to attend. Everyone can tour the museum and the National Annie Oakley Center at no charge on this one afternoon.

Join us for an afternoon of seasonal music, light refreshments, and beautiful decorations. The museum’s Christmas collection will be used for decorating throughout the museum. Plan to do a little Christmas shopping in the Museum Store, as there will be a 20% discount on all items.

The museum features a number of beautifully decorated Christmas trees illustrating the talents of the following groups: The Wildflower Garden Club, Junior Butterflies Garden Club, Sun and Fun Garden Club, Ladybug Garden Club, Garden Ladies Garden Club, Wood Sprites Garden Club, the VFW Women’s Auxiliary, and the Fort Greene Ville Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Plan to stop by and enjoy the fun, shop, and also take advantage of the free admission to tour the museum.

The Darke County Historical Society and the Garst Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, exhibit, study, and interpret materials relating to the history and culture of Darke County, Ohio, as it represents a crossroads of the American experience. The DCHS operates the Garst Museum in Greenville, Ohio, and its 35,000-square-foot campus houses over 300,000 artifacts. Permanent exhibitions of national significance include the National Annie Oakley Center, the Treaty of Greenville, Lowell Thomas, Ohio Native Americans, and the multi-racial settlement of Longtown.
