Holidays Past Celebrated
Have your parents or grandparents told you time and again about the good old days in their hometown? Chances are you hear it quite a bit, especially this time of year. Well, thanks to the Weirton Area Museum, walking the main level halls of WMC will take you back to holidays past. Photos from Weirton’s earlier days are on display in the WMC Medical Office building hallway just off of the Atrium. There you will see photos from the 1970 Weirton Christmas Parade, the December, 1961 Greek School Party, the 1963 ISU Christmas Party and so much more. Hospital administrators approached Dennis Jones of the Museum to inquire about borrowing the “historical art”
of holidays past for the enjoyment of visitors and employees. Jones kindly obliged. The photos will be on display through the holidays to celebrate our rich history. Perhaps a loved one of yours is in one of those pictures?
Maybe even a photo of you? You’re invited to come check them out.
