Franklin County Historical Museum celebrates the holidays

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- The Franklin County Historical Museum played host to an old-fashioned holiday open house in Pasco Saturday.

Close to 100 people came out to the annual party to celebrate the history of the museum and gather with old friends.

A local childrens church choir came to the party to sing Christmas carols and even Mrs. Clause dropped by.

"People just really enjoy getting together. A lot of these folks are staunch supporters of the museum and pillars of our community. So, a lot of people know one another and it's really good to see one another at this time of year," said Sherel Webb, museum administrator.

This annual open house has been going for over ten years and it continues to bring in community support.

The Franklin County Historical Museum was built in 1910 as a library and it became a museum in 1983.
