The exhibit, which features over 120 pieces, opens on Saturday, Nov. 15 along with a new quilt display, featuring quilts of Syd Heimer and her family.
Individuals displaying their Byers Carolers include Marlene Ham, Betty McCarthy and B.J. Nelson.
“Each of these ladies has a great collection of carolers,” said Ellen Elsbury, MCHS Museum Chairperson. “We are happy that each were willing to share their collection with our visitors.”
“Over the years, I purchased some as well as received some as gifts,” said Nelson. “Several of them were purchased at ‘Sweeney’s.’ People know I enjoy collecting them.
“I thought I would share them with others to enjoy like I do.”
The Mitchell County Historical Society Museum is open 1-5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday and is located in the Cedar River Complex, 809 Sawyer Drive, Osage.
