Annual Norwood Historical Society Holiday Open House

Steve Thornbury with the Norwood Historical Society is inviting all community members to come to their Holiday Open House this Saturday:

Everyone is invited to attend the annual Holiday Open House sponsored by the Norwood Historical Society beginning at 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 13th at the McCullough House in Lindner Park Nature Preserve on Cypress Way.

The McCullough House, the original home of the McCullough Seed Company and family, will be decorated for the season with members of the Norwood Historical Society on-hand to welcome visitors. Light refreshments, snacks and holiday treats will be served, and a variety of historical information and objects will be available to view.

Visitors will also be able to purchase tickets for the drawing to be held that evening for the extraordinary scale model replicas of a Norwood Ford Crown Victoria Police Cruiser created by Historical Society member Rodney Steele. Authentic in every detail, each cast metal model was assembled by Mr. Steele after carefully documenting the equipment and markings of an actual Norwood Police Cruiser. The decals are custom made and the doors and hood are fully operational.

The Open House is a great opportunity for the public to view and tour the McCullough House that is normally only open for special occasions.
