A holiday MUST! Local artists will sell handcrafted goods in the barn. Food for purchase will be available. Join the museum volunteers and docents for a wonderful day on the museum grounds with Santa. He will be taking a much needed break from the North Pole to roam the grounds and join in hayrides with the kids – weather permitting.
Both events will help promote the growth of the Ely Stage Stop Blacksmith Shop and further the interaction of the community with the history of Lake County at the Ely Stage Stop.
