POMEROY — The Meigs County Historical Society is prepared for the holiday season with its latest display and several local items available in the Meigs County Museum gift shop.

The museum’s latest display is a tribute to veterans, titled “I’ll be home for Christmas.”

The display includes items from as early as the Revolutionary War, up to recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Items include those from local veterans, uniforms and items from throughout the eras, as well as recognition to the local soldiers lost in Vietnam who’s names are on the Vietnam Wall.

Currently, the museum has the Cat’s Meow statues for the Meigs Theatre and Sugar Run Mill, as well as taking pre-orders for Adolph’s and the Meigs Inn, both of which are expected before Christmas.

Raffle tickets are also available for a four-wheeler to be drawn later this month.

Upcoming special events at the museum include kid’s weekend Nov. 19 and 20, as well as Dec. 18. The November kids weekend will include the making of Meigs County applesauce ornaments.

Santa Claus will be at the museum Dec. 18, from 1-4 p.m., with photos being taken.

Dec. 18 will be the last day the museum is open for 2016.

The museum will be open on Black Friday with yet to be determined specials for shoppers. Members of the historical society receive a 10 percent discount every day.

Memberships are currently being accepted for 2017.
