Santa Claus Came to Town

We are so pleased to exhibit the historic Thilenius Distributing Model AA Ford truck. We are thankful to LaDonna and the late Howard Thilenius for this accession. It has been fun to use it in our collection. Today, Santa brought the truck to Altenburg, to deliver this giant tree!

A very special thanks to Meier Horseshoe Pines Christmas Tree Farm, Scott McDowell, Darryl Peetz, Warren Schmidt, Gerard Fiehler, Sally Schmidt Buerck of SB Designs, and CL Jordan Preservation for the: tree, towing, placement, and the holiday designs.

And, while visiting the truck, “Smile You’re on Candid Surveillance Camera.”

Come and take some photos beside the truck. See the festive lawn decorations in our little villages of Altenburg & Frohna. Visit our awesome Christmas exhibit including 54 trees (each with their own story) with 200+ international Nativity Scenes from the incredible Gloystein Collection.

Open Daily from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Open this Thur.-Fri. from 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
