Santa Through the Ages Display

The display case just outside the Genealogy & Local History Department door is always filled with interesting displays. During the month of December the display is “Santa Through the Ages”. In this display you will see Santa’s made of resin, wood, and even ceramic with a flicker light inside his round belly. We have Santa’s representing France, Rumania,
Bavaria, Belgium, Russia, the U.S. and many other countries. We have Santa’s from different time periods including 1889, 1893, 1895, 1900, and 1903 through the present. We even have a Santa inside a crystal bell. The most unique Santa is “Black Peter” from the Middle Ages. One night a year he helps Santa deliver treats to the Dutch children. Whether you call him Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, Sinterklaas or just Santa, stop by the Genealogy & Local History Department to see the display and "Happy Holidays" from the Staff at GLHD.
