2020 Clinton Historical Society Ornament & Christmas Card Collection Request

The Clinton Historical Society would once again this year like our members and people from the community at large to send us Christmas cards which will be used as a part of our Holiday Exhibit. We would also like you to write a few lines about how the pandemic is changing your normal holiday plans. Although we are not holding any group activities this year, the public is still invited to come in during our regular hours of Wed. and Sat. 1-4 to see our exhibit cases which will be filled with our extensive collection of Victorian Byer Figurines and a Charming Christmas Village. And in addition to the Christmas cards we receive from the public, we will once again feature cards created by Clinton artist Howard Chaney.

You will also be able to purchase our 4th annual Christmas ornament when you visit the Museum. Masks are required and social distancing adhered to.

Clinton Historical Society is located at 1 Fountain St., Clinton, NY 13323. 315-359-1392. 

We truly appreciate our dedicated Postal Workers and other Essential Workers this Holiday Season.
