The Bridgeville Area Historical Society has two unique Christmas trees on display at its Railroad Street headquarters.
One full-size tree is decorated entirely with ornaments depicting notable moments in American presidential history, including Lincoln’s official portrait, Grover Cleveland’s wedding to the first time electric lights decorated the White House. The ornaments were donated by former Bridgeville resident Dana Spriggs.
A second, smaller tree is decorated from top-to-bottom with ornaments handmade in Bridgeville. Assembled by residents Karen Godwin and Eleanor Tyrone, his tree won first place in the Friends of the Library’s annual Festival of Trees contest.
The Bridgeville Area Historical Society, located at 441 Station Street, is open to the public Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
